The San Francisco Sheriff’s Department is collecting holiday toys for underprivileged children in the community. Between Thursday and Dec. 20, the department is partnering with the nonprofit Community Works West to accept toys on behalf of children of incarcerated parents, young patients at the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center, and children in need in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood.
New, unwrapped gifts can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the San Francisco sheriff’s Women’s Resource Center at 930 Bryant St. A celebration to kick off the toy drive will be held at the resource center on Thursday from noon to 2 p.m., when San Francisco City College cheer squad volunteers will be collecting toys. Anyone who wants to donate a gift but can’t make it to the resource center can send an email to [email protected] to arrange a pickup.
