The REC Center and Nissan of San Bernardino Partner for the Holidays
SAN BERNARDINO, CA – (Tuesday, November 5, 2013) – The holiday spirit is in full force in Grand Terrace and San Bernardino. The REC Center has partnered with Nissan of San Bernardino to “Stuff a Nissan” with gifts, games and toys each Tuesday at the Market Night & Holiday Boutique from November 5 through December 17 which will benefit Children’s Fund’s Celebration of Giving Campaign. Located in the Walgreens Shopping Center, 22456 Barton Road in Grand Terrace, the Farmer’s Market has 25+ vendors featuring locally grown and hand-made items, and now a Nissan on site to stuff.
Farmer’s Market spokesperson, Jennifer Araiza, approached Nissan of San Bernardino with the idea. “This is a great way to get residents of our local communities involved in making a difference for the kids who are less fortunate. We want every child to receive a gift during the holidays but knew we could not achieve our goals without partnering with other local businesses and organizations,” states Araiza.
“Nissan of San Bernardino was looking for a way to give back to those in our community,” says Ricky Lugo of Nissan, “and we feel this is a great way to do it.” The “Stuff a Nissan” campaign will continue at the dealership throughout the holiday season. “We will have the car available to stuff at the dealership during the days it is not at the Farmer’s Market.” Nissan of San Bernardino is located at 735 W. Showcase Drive South, San Bernardino, CA 92408.
Children’s Fund’s Celebration of Giving Campaign is in its 25th year of collecting holiday gifts for underprivileged children in our local communities. In a region where one in four youth live in poverty, it is a way to help bring joy to a child during the holiday season.
“It is so inspiring to see different organizations join together so that the holidays can be brighter for these kids that might otherwise not receive a gift at all ,” says Erin Phillips, president & CEO of Children’s Fund. “Together we can accomplish so much more than we could ever hope to do individually. We are so thankful for each and every donation.”
