Firefighters Toys For Tots is an independent organization originally founded by firefighters from the City of San Mateo and now voluntarily run and assisted by firefighters throughout San Mateo County. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to help families with toys, gift cards, groceries and more during the holiday season and after catastrophic events (fire, earthquake, medical emergency).
Having collected your donated toys and gifts for tens of thousands of needy children over the years, we thank you for your past and continued support.
Firefighter's Toys For Tots is an honored recipient of donations from a variety of sources. Some companies donate toys from their own production lines while students and teachers from local schools collaborate to organize toy drives. Many toys are collected during Holiday office parties. A number of generous citizens drop off toys at their nearest fire station. While still others purchase new toys, games and clothing and drop them off at our Hillsdale Mall Toy Booth. Today we find ourselves as the principal supplier of Holiday toys to numerous charitable agencies throughout our county.
