The Alameda Collaborative for Children, Youth, and their Families (ACCYF), Alameda Food Bank, Alameda Red Cross Youth, Alameda Firefighters, and other Community Organizations are working in partnership to launch the 2016 Alameda Firefighters Toy Program. The Program will ensure that all low-income Alameda families who sign up at the Alameda Food Bank receive age-appropriate holiday toys for their children aged 0-12 and gift cards for their youth aged 13-16.
Families needing toys are invited to sign up at the Alameda Food Bank between now and December 14th. Please visit Alamedafoodbank.org or call (510) 523-5850 for hours and locations. This year, we are especially in need of crafts, sports balls, and other items for our older children.
Please help us by dropping off new, unwrapped toys at one of the Alameda Firefighters Toy Programlocations below. The final pickup for these sites will be Friday, December 16.
