Help bring good tidings to families in need this December! Be a “local Santa” and support the our 2nd Annual Toy Drive, starting Friday, December 13th. This year, we’re expanding our reach and collecting toys for children and families living in the Mission and in the Western Addition. Donations from Bi-Rite Market Divisadero will go to the Western Addition Beacon Center (WABC), which inspires youth daily through arts and cultural programming, academic support, college prep and sports. All toys from Bi-Rite Market and Bi-Rite Creamery on 18th Street will go to Arriba Juntos, a Mission-based community organization that has been fostering self-sufficiency through occupational training and job opportunities for our neediest neighbors, for almost 50 years. Both organizations work incredibly hard to support local, disadvantaged families every day; we need your support to ensure that our neighbors have a great holiday.
We’re looking for new and unwrapped:
- *Toys (for kids 12 and under)
*Sports equipment (e.g. basketballs and soccer balls)
You can drop off these goodies in the toy barrels at the entrances of:
Last year was a great success and the neighborhood came out in full force – we collected everything from jewelry making kits, baseballs, stuffed animals, classic children’s books, board games, and remote control cars to walkie-talkies, crayons, markers, one awesome twisty skateboard, and a Mr. Potato Head. Tis’ the season and help us do it again!
