Best Buy Employees Bring Holiday Cheer to Kids in Hospital

Some elves from Best Buy met at Children’s Hospital of Orange County on Thursday to help unload a car full of toys.

Best Buy store and district leaders in southern California donated the new, unwrapped gifts. The hope was that each present would lift the spirits of sick kids who must spend their holiday in the hospital.

“The minute we asked, without hesitation they all jumped in,” said Grace Valencia, a human resources manager. “That’s just the great culture we’ve built.”

Bringing joy  

Agent Kevin Bostwick works at the hospital’s Geek Squad Precinct and knows firsthand how the small things can often make a big difference to families.

“On top of being sick, sometimes money is tight, and it can be tough to see the joy,” Kevin said. “What always amazes me is that sometimes just talking to the parents, or helping a kid get an Xbox game, can make each day a little better.”

With the holidays here, Kevin and Grace hope to not only help make each day better, but also brighter.
