EXPERIAN DONATES $30,000 TO SUPPORT CHOC'S CHILD LIFE DEPARTMENT
May 19, 2008

Experian, a global information services company, recently presented Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) with a check for $30,000 in support of the hospital’s Child Life Program.  That total is expected to increase by year’s end with Experian’s participation in the CHOC/Disneyland Resort Walk in the Park, the hospital’s biggest fundraiser, on October 19th.

“Experian is truly honored to make the donation to Children’s Hospital of Orange County in support of the Child Life Program,” said Donald Girard, vice president of public affairs, Experian. “CHOC is an exceptional hospital and we commend the organization’s dedication and commitment to providing high quality medical care to children and families in Orange County.”
