Dates and Locations for 2017 Alameda Firefighters Toy Program Announced
The 2017 Alameda Firefighters Toy Program is a partnership of the Alameda Collaborative for Children, Youth, and their Families (ACCYF), Alameda Food Bank, Alameda Red Cross Youth, Alameda Firefighters, and other Community Organizations. 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 youth aged 13-16.
Families needing toys are invited to sign up at the Alameda Food Bank between now and December 16. Please visit www.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. Cash donations are also needed to purchase the $25 Gift Cards given to youth ages 13-16. Checks made out to Alameda Firefighters Toy Program (AFTP) can be mailed to 2516 Santa Clara Suite A, Alameda, CA 94501. Your donation is tax-deductible.
