#PVGivesBack for the Holidays!

December 19, 2019 — by Kristy Ryan

‘Tis the season to give and give back.

To kick off the holiday season this year, Pura Vida teamed up with our local charity partner, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego, to host a toy drive, ensuring that every student has an awesome gift to open for the holidays.

From December 7th – December 15th, we asked all of you to help us collect gifts for the students, including toys, clothes, accessories, sports equipment and more. It was such as success, and we were blown away by all of your generosity!

With the help of our local retail partners Urban Girl Accessories and Hansen’s, and our national brand partner Indy Brand Clothing, we were able to collect hundreds of gifts, including:

  • Cute and cozy tee’s, sweatshirts and hats from Indy Brand
  • Lego sets
  • Play-Doh and slime sets
  • Stuffed animals
  • Fleece blankets
  • Art sets
  • Books
  • Hot wheels
  • and so much more!

The gifts were then collected by the Boys & Girls Clubs, where their awesome team of volunteers sorted and wrapped each gift so they’d be ready to hand out at their holiday party, which we were fortunate enough to attend!

The PV team helped run a few of the party activities, like face painting, arts and crafts, and carnival games, where the kids played games to win tickets for fun prizes like bikes and scooters.

Once the games were over, Santa stopped by to start giving out the presents, and the kids had the BEST time opening the gifts!

We were so thankful to help put a smile on the faces of so many sweet, smart, and deserving kids. Thank you Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego for including us, and for all the work you do!
