U.S. Egg, the Valley’s ultimate breakfast and lunch spot, is proud to announce that it is teaming up with Arizona Helping Hands this November for its annual toy and pajama drive benefitting boys and girls in foster care.
Arizona Helping Hands 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 the over 15,000 children in state and tribal foster care.
For the entire month of November, all six Valley U.S. Egg locations will be collecting new toys and pajamas that will be donated to Arizona Helping Hands. In addition to pajamas, the organization is collecting socks, diapers, and hygiene items. Participants are invited to come enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch at the restaurant while also providing support and kindness to foster families before the holiday season.
“We are excited to once again partner with Arizona Helping Hands (AHH) to help support boys and girls in foster care,” said George Gebran, U.S. Egg’s COO and co-owner. “We look forward to this toy and pajama drive each year, as it is important for us to give back to the children in our community. We hope the public will join us in donating and impacting the lives of these children in a positive way.”
“Arizona Helping Hands is committed to our mission of providing essential needs to children in foster care in Arizona, but we simply cannot do it alone,” said Maureen Noe, President and CEO of Arizona Helping Hands. “We are grateful to our corporate and community foster allies like U.S. Egg. A former foster child shared with us recently, “Without the people who cared about me, I didn’t care about myself.” The pajama drive is our chance to make the holidays bright for children experiencing foster care in our state. We need the community to join us so we can show every single one of them that they matter, they are special, and we won’t let them forget. We are humbled and overjoyed by the continued support.”
