NEXT MEETING: December 13, 2013
Support the annual Richmond/El Cerrito Fire & Police Holiday Toy Program
This meeting is the occasion of our annual toy drive, which supports the Richmond/El Cerrito Fire & Police Holiday Toy Program. Please bring your new unwrapped toys. The firefighters and police will collect, then distribute them to economically disadvantaged children in the western Contra Costa County area during the holiday season.
The mission statement of the Holiday Toy Program states:
As professional firefighters, we see the ravages brought on by the loss of both homes and property. Our non-profit organization strives to brighten the lives of needy children in Richmond, San Pablo and the surrounding communities, particularly during the holidays. Both monetary donations and donations of new, unwrapped toys are accepted throughout the calendar year.
