Cydcor Builds Bears and Bonds in Special Charity Event Benefitting Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

Leading global provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams hosts a toy drive at Build-A-Bear during annual team-building event

Westlake Village, Calif. (PRWEB) March 11, 2009 -- Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, hosted a toy drive to benefit Childrens Hospital Los Angeles during its annual corporate kick-off meeting.

About 70 participating Cydcor team members were given $50 each to create warm and fuzzy companions at Thousand Oaks' Build-A-Bear and then deliver them to chronically and critically ill pediatric patients at the hospital. With the help and generosity of Build-A-Bear's 10 percent discount, Cydcor was able to donate $3,000 in furry friends.

"As uncertainty looms throughout the country, Cydcor is thrilled to kick off 2009 with this positive team-building event," said Gary Polson, chief executive officer of Cydcor. "We're grateful we're able to both give back to local business and brighten the day of a sick child as we continue to create a company culture of giving back to the communities in which we thrive."

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles distributes approximately 500 toys a week. Children receive toys after a week-long hospital stay, when they're preparing for a painful procedure or operation, have a birthday or simply don't have toys from home.

"As a diversionary and a therapeutic approach, toys play an important part in enhancing the well being of hospitalized children," said Wendi Kellaris, Manager - Volunteer Resources of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. "Cydcor's efforts are greatly appreciated and provide our patients a positive experience that is so vital to their recovery."
