The Bear Hugs Toy Drive is an annual charity campaign launched by Liset Meruelo, wife of prominent Cuban-American businessman Alex Meruelo, of Meruelo Group. During the holiday season, Meruelo Group employees, families and friends across Southern California collect teddy bears and stuffed animals for the “Bear Hugs Toy Drive.” This is the 16th teddy bears are being collected for the “Bear Hugs Toy Drive.” Bears are distributed to local Southern California children and families to bring joy throughout the year.


 Liset and Alex Meruelo are longtime supporters of Miller Children’s. Liset understands how difficult it is for a child to be hospitalized and her ultimate goal is to provide a teddy bear to every patient. Something as small as a teddy bear can make a world of a difference to patients and their families, bringing them comfort and the opportunity to forget their illness for one day. Liset also volunteers as a NICU cuddler at Miller Children’s, where she supports the development and growth of premature babies by interacting with them during times when their parents can’t be with them.
