Every child deserves a toy this holiday season. That’s why Gladstone is partnering with the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program. 

This year, Gladstone is aiming to donate 125 toys to put under the tree. Help us meet our goal!

How to Give

Due to COVID-19, Gladstone won’t be collecting physical donations this year. Instead, you can purchase a specific toy through the Gladstone-sponsored page.

About the SF Firefighters Toy Program

The San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program is the city’s largest and the nation’s oldest program of its kind. Since 1949, it has evolved from a few firefighters repairing broken toys and bikes for 15 families to over 300 firefighters and friends volunteering their time to distribute over 200,000 toys to more than 40,000 disadvantaged children year-round. Besides helping individual families in need, the Toy Program serves many community organizations, including shelters for abused women and children, inner-city schools, neighborhood groups, children’s cancer wards, and pediatric AIDS units. They also respond throughout the year to displaced children who become victims of fires, floods, and other such disasters.
