U.S. Egg is teaming up with Arizona Helping Hands (AHH) to host a new toy and pajama drive for boys and girls in foster care. AHH is the largest organization in Arizona that provides beds, cribs, clothing, toiletries, birthday gifts, holiday toys, backpacks with school supplies, licensing safety items, and more to more than 14,000 children in foster care.
“It may come as a surprise to many, but many children in foster care have never had their birthday celebrated and often do not have any personal belongings when they go into a foster home,” said Sherie Siegel, Vice President of Arizona Helping Hands. “Providing a new pair of pajamas or piece of clothing that is theirs makes a huge impact. Every child should feel special for their birthday. Providing new birthday gifts shows them that people truly care and take the time to think about them. We are thankful for the community’s support with this drive.”
For the entire month of May, all six Valley U.S. Egg locations will be collecting new toys and pajamas that will be donated to Arizona Helping Hands. The greatest need are new toys for boys and girls ages 6-12 to support the Birthday Dreams program, where every child in foster care receives new gifts and a new book.
“As a family-oriented business, we prioritize giving back and supporting our community, especially those in need,” said George Gebran owner of U.S. Egg. “Partnering with AHH and hosting this pajama drives is one of the most important things we do all year.”
Another family operated company, Hickman’s Family Farms is also supporting the drive this year as one of the primary sponsors.
The restaurant will host foster families throughout the month of May so they can enjoy a complimentary breakfast or lunch on U.S. Egg.
