The San Diego Building Owners & Managers Association (BOMA) is hosting its 20th annual “Give From Your Heart” gift drive. The drive will benefit Promises2Kids, a nonprofit organization that has worked to create a brighter future for foster children for more than 32 years in San Diego County.
BOMA delivered more than 300 wrapped collection bins to more than 150 major business and office buildings throughout San Diego County. San Diego residents are encouraged to drop off new and unwrapped gifts to the bins through Dec. 12, when the bins will be collected and delivered to the sorting facility where Promises2Kids will allocate the gifts to foster children within San Diego County. A list of participating building drop off locations throughout San Diego county is available at www.bomasd.org. The Promises2Kids gift wish list and Amazon wish list are available at www.promises2kids.org.
“This is an incredible way for our organization to give back to the community and bring joy into the lives of hundreds of children during the tough holiday season,” said BOMA President Mike Hansen. “Over the years we’ve brought together dozens of volunteers eager to brighten the lives of children by decorating and distributing hundreds of collection bins and encouraging tenants in office buildings to donate toys. It’s truly amazing.”
BOMA’s goal this year is to collect 20,000 gift items and gift cards. This is a community-wide effort with corporate leaders volunteering hundreds of hours to brighten the holidays for under served children of San Diego. For more information, visit www.bomasd.org or contact the BOMA Office.
