SFPD and Walgreens Kick Off 2017 Holiday Toy Drive 17-166

In collaboration with Walgreens drugstores, the San Francisco Police Department today launched its 2017 Holiday Toy Drive, benefiting the City’s children in need.

From November 2 to December 19, SFPD will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys at more than 60 San Francisco Walgreens locations. The goal is to exceed last year’s toy drive, in which approximately 6,000 items were donated at Walgreens stores for distribution to San Francisco children.

“Something as simple as a toy can stir a child’s imagination and bring joy to youth in need,” said San Francisco Police Chief William Scott. “Please give generously to make this holiday season brighter for our City’s children.”

Donors can purchase or drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any San Francisco Walgreens that features a brightly colored and marked toy drive collection bin.
