Stuff the Bus With Toys!

December 4, 2014


Annual Sheriff's Department Toy Drive.

Join the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department this coming Saturday December 6 for their annual “Stuff the Bus” holiday toy drive, which helps shed some cheer on those who are less fortunate this holiday season. The Sheriff's Department community outreach organizations, with help from the Redwood City and San Carlos Fire Departments, Bianchini's Market, and Toy's R Us, will be at various locations throughout the mid-Peninsula on Saturday to collect toys and cash donations in lieu of toys.  In addition, there are dozens of collection barrels located throughout the area that will be available all month for people to drop off unwrapped toys and books.

Last year, the Department estimated that they distributed gifts to nearly 700 local families, and they expect that number to grow even larger this year as more families are stretched to make ends meet during the holidays.

The Saturday festivities will be at the following locations:

  • 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM at Bianchini's Market, San Carlos
  • 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the Toys R Us store in Redwood City.
  • 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM at the Toys R Us store in Foster City

There will be lots of fun activities there for the kids, too, and even free pictures with Santa for everyone who makes a donation.   So don't miss out on this opportunity to make the holidays brighter for some families in need!

And many thanks to all of the folks at the Sheriff's Department, and their many partners in this event, for such a fantastic example of holiday goodwill and community support.
