24Hr HomeCare’s Toy Drive Brings Joy to Hundreds of Children of the Tri-Counties Regional Center

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A crowd quickly formed outside the doors of the Tri-Counties Regional
Center, as parents from all over Ventura County excitedly lined up, one
after the other, with their children in tow. Two volunteers wearing
lit-up headbands opened the doors to the Holiday Toy Drive, and the
families flooded in.

24Hr HomeCare, a non-medical in-home care company, collaborated with
Rainbow Connection Family Resource Center, a program of Tri-Counties
Regional Center, a nonprofit that provides services for children and
adults with developmental disabilities in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San
Luis Obispo counties, in addition to various community partners and
local vendors, to host its annual Holiday Toy Drive event. In October,
24Hr HomeCare began collecting toys for Tri-Counties Regional Center,
relying on its community’s generosity to brighten up the holidays for
the children and their families. Toy Drive drop boxes were posted up at
local businesses, hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, collecting
nearly 600 toys.

“Our team created a wish list that focused on sensory and therapy toys,
which enhance the development of motor and communication skills, and
donors gifted us toys off of our list in bulk,” noted Sonia Ojeda, 24Hr
HomeCare’s Program Director of Disability Services. “This year, we
received more toy donations than ever before— and we could not be more
grateful.”

At the Holiday Toy Drive, parents and children carefully picked out toys
together, before getting them wrapped at the wrapping counter. Families
glued, cut and taped together Christmas ornaments at the arts and crafts
corner, snapped instant photos at the holiday photobooth, and enjoyed
coffee and donuts at the breakfast table.

“I wish our donors could see what it’s like when a child finds his dream
scooter or the baby doll he or she’s always wanted at our Toy Drive.
This is a special time for us to give back to the community we serve and
we can’t wait to support the Regional Centers next year,” said Ojeda.
