|CCFD Leads Another Successful Toy Drive
Collects 358 barrels of toys and $16,000 in monetary donations and gift cards
Congratulations and thank you to the Central County Fire Department (CCFD) for managing another phenomenal toy drive this past holiday season! The CCFD successfully collected 358 toy barrels from 35 collection sites throughout Burlingame, Hillsborough and Millbrae. In addition to toys, the team received a total of $15,884 in monetary donations and $400 in gift cards. This large sum was largely achievable due to a $12,643.65 donation from John Kevranian, owner of Nuts for Candy and law firm, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP in Burlingame!
In the true spirit of giving and collaboration, several other businesses also participated in making this year's Toy Drive so successful. Top Line Automotive, The Barrel House, Fiddlers Green, and Green Hills Country Club provided a benefit party and all donations went to the CCFD Toy Drive. In addition, a local organization, Moms Against Poverty (M.A.P), organized a fantastic turnout at their holiday wrapping party at the Burlingame Recreation Center. The CCFD also collaborated with the Bridge School and Franklin School Toy Drives.
All of the proceeds from the Toy Drive were donated to twelve different charitable organizations within San Mateo County.
