Richmond - El Cerrito Holiday Toy Program
Support the annual toy drive!

For over 20 years, the Richmond/El Cerrito Firefighters’ Annual Toy Program has provided holiday cheer for disadvantaged children in West Contra Costa County including Rodeo, Crockett, Pinole, Hercules, San Pablo, El Sobrante, Richmond, El Cerrito and Kensington, as well as Albany. The Richmond/El Cerrito Firefighters’ Toy Program works in conjunction with the Richmond Police Department’s Food Basket Program and the Coronado YMCA.

The El Cerrito-Kensington Fire Department participates in this annual program with the Richmond Fire Department. The firefighters are currently accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys and games for children ages 0-12 years, as well as monetary donations. Toys should be of a non-violent nature (no guns/knives/swords/nerf guns/etc).

Monetary donations for the Richmond/El Cerrito Toy Program are accepted throughout the year via https://www.youcaring.com/richmondelcerritofireandpoliceholidayprogram-683069

New, unwrapped toys can be donated  at various locations including any fire station in West County. Additional donation locations in El Cerrito/Kensington include:
