Hughes is accepting new and unwrapped toy donations at all eight of their branches through Friday, December 14, 2018. To celebrate a successful toy drive, La Caliente and La Buena Radio will be at Sunnyside High School, 1725 E.

The DJ lineup will include Los Hijos de la Mañana, Enrique Mayans and El Chiquilin.
“The Miracle on 31st Street is a longstanding tradition in our community and the perfect opportunity for Hughes to help spread some holiday cheer,” said Dani Gomez, Marketing Manager. “We are proud to have such generous members, staff and other supporters who have come out to make this toy drive the most successful yet!” Ms. Gomez continued, “With over 10,000 children expected at the Miracle on 31st Street event at the AVA Amphitheater, every single donation will truly make a difference and we are hoping to see a large turnout for the last day of the drive.”
Hughes Federal Credit Union believes in giving back to the community they serve with their mission to always make a positive difference in each member’s financial life. This large toy donation is being made possible by Hughes members, staff and a number of select employer groups that have dropped off donated toys.
