THE DOWNLOAD: Toy and Food Drives, Wade on Wine

Virtual Holiday Toy Drive - UC Davis Children's Hospital

There are lots of ways to help others this holiday season, and UC Davis Children’s Hospital is making use of the university’s own crowdfunding platform to empower donors to do so.

You will find the hospital's Virtual Holiday Toy Drive on Crowdfund UC Davis, where you can purchase toys without leaving your home. The donation drive runs through Dec. 24.

Learn more in the above video and on the campaign website, and in this previous Dateline article, which also includes information on contributing to Toys for Tots for Yolo County children, as well as to pets belonging to unhoused people in Sacramento. The article has been updated with information on Stuff the Bus, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 11, when Unitrans and the Davis Food Co-op will be collecting food and a few other of life’s necessities for distribution by the ASUCD Pantry.
