2017 Toy Store & Holiday Meal Program

Our Toy Store provides free toys, books & clothing to about 400 children each year. Holiday meals are provided to families to partake in their own holiday family meal.

Help give San Francisco families a holiday season to remember by hosting a donation drive, volunteering at the store, or contributing a monetary gift towards our Toy and Meal Program!
