Upper Deck Surprises and Delights Veterans and Kids during the Holidays by Giving Back
Posted On 04 Jan 2016 / 0 Comment
A major initiative for Upper Deck is to find ways to give back to the local community during the holidays. Recently members of Upper Deck stopped by and visited a few Veteran Centers across San Diego County.

There is a huge military community in San Diego and we wanted to find a way to thank many of the veterans in the area for their service.

Upper Deck donated hundreds of boxes of trading card product and games to these worthy organizations and brought Coach Cardman along to help bring smiles to the faces of those we met. We spent time visiting with veterans at the San Marcos Veteran Center and met with Rick Ochocki, the Development Director at the Veterans Village of San Diego.

The giving back to the community didn’t stop there. Upper Deck also stopped by Rady Children’s Hospital to donate over 100 toys to the children that were at the facilities during the holidays.
