Holiday Toy Drive Supports Local Charities

Holiday Toy Drive Supports Local Charities

2019 holiday toy drive

Santa Clara County Fire Department will continue its long standing tradition of supporting local holiday toy programs by collecting new unwrapped toys at all of its Fire Stations and Headquarters office.

 Toys collected will benefit families throughout Santa Clara County by supplying much needed toys to programs including Campbell Community Toy Program, Community Services Agency of Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills, Hope’s Corner, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office Santa Paws and the Valley Medical Center Pediatric Unit.

Please join in on the spirit of holiday giving. Collections begin on Saturday, November 23 and toys will be accepted until Monday, December 23. Specific needs this year include toys and items appropriate for teenagers, who tend to be the most underserved in toy drives, but are equally deserving of something to brighten their holiday. Please consider donating sports equipment, balls, and activity-based items such as art supplies. Gift cards and cash donations are also appreciated.

AlertSCC Focused Test - Friday, August 30 at 10:00 a.m.

Santa Clara County Fire Department will be conducting a focused test of the AlertSCC system on Friday, August 30th at 10:00 a.m.

With Santa Clara County residents heading to enjoy the Labor Day weekend, many people will be enjoying outdoor recreation in areas susceptible to wildfires. SCCFD will be testing the AlertSCC system and using this opportunity to remind residents of steps they can take to be fire safe.

“Nearly every community served by Santa Clara County Fire Department is at risk for wildfire and needs to be prepared,” said Tony Bowden, SCCFD Fire Chief. “They can do this by registering for AlertSCC (www.alertscc.com) and visiting our website www.sccfd.org/rsg for wildfire preparedness tips.”
