Toys for Kids
The Santa Rosa Fire Fighters Local 1401 has
conducted a toy collection to benefit children in need within the Santa Rosa
area for over twenty years. This unique program, operated through the generous
donations of our community, businesses and local agencies, affords an
opportunity to reach out and provide those less fortunate children in the Santa
Rosa area with at least one new toy at the Holiday Season.
The 2016 Toys for Kids Program distributed
toys to elementary school age children throughout the greater Santa Rosa
Area. The children benefitting from the
Toys for Kids program were reached through the Bellevue, Bennett Valley, Mark West, Piner-Olivet, Rincon Valley, Roseland, Santa Rosa, and Wright Elementary School
Districts. We also assisted the
Volunteer Center of Sonoma County by providing toys to fulfill wishes through
their Giving Tree Program, the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa
Rec & Parks, YWCA Sonoma County, and many more organizations.
FIRE STATIONS - Visit any Santa Rosa or
Rincon Valley Fire Station from
Thanksgiving to Christmas eve. Look for the collection barrels in front of the
stations during the holiday season.
SANTA ROSA PLAZA SHOPPING CENTER - Firefighters and their families will be at Santa Rosa Plaza
collecting cash donations and new un-wrapped toys from December
5th - 23rd. We will be on-site Monday-Thursday 4:30PM-7:30PM and Friday-Sunday 1:30PM-7:30PM.
TOYS FOR KIDS PANCAKE BREAKFAST - Ho, Ho, Ho!!! Grab the kids and
