San Luis Obispo
Cal Poly faculty and staff, the Associated Students Inc. and the Cal Poly Corp. employees donated more than 400 toys and $300 in gift cards during a recent holiday reception hosted on campus by Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong and his wife, Sharon.
The gifts were taken to San Luis Obispo nonprofit Jack’s Helping Hand, which provides assistance and programs to children with cancer, disabilities, other illnesses and special needs.
Some of the toys may be given to children at Jack’s Helping Hand’s oncology Christmas party at the Madonna Inn or may be picked up by families at the nonprofit’s office. Others will be used to fill a toy cabinet, where children can pick a toy to take with them when they travel to Los Angeles, the Bay Area or the Central Valley for chemotherapy, surgery or pediatric specialty treatments.

Each year, a different Central Coast nonprofit organization is selected by Idler’s Home to receive a donation through the clearance sales event.
