The Foster City Fire Department has announced the start of its annual Holiday Toy and Food Drive.
During the month of December, donations of both canned and non-perishable food (including pasta, rice and dry beans) and new, unwrapped stuffed animals, toys and books are gladly accepted at the Fire Station at 1040 East Hillsdale Blvd.
This year the fire department is unable to accept used toys, books or stuffed animals. Monetary donations, made payable to Samaritan House, are welcome.
Toys and food may be dropped off at the Fire Administration Offices during regular business hours or at any time at the Collection Center behind the Fire Station.
Food contributions and toy donations will be distributed by Samaritan House to families in need here in our community. Donations will be accepted until Dec. 24.
The holiday season places an unusually high demand on resources and every donation is greatly appreciated and gladly accepted. In addition to food donations, these organizations can do “magic” with your monetary donations--turning dollars into food for the hungry.
For more information on making a donation, please contact the Fire Department at 650-286-3350.
