You're invited to join the Bridgemen and celebrate all our accomplishments in 2018 at our 8th Annual Bridgemen Holiday Party & Toy Drive to benefit disadvantaged children in the Bay Area. We'll provide food and drinks; you bring your friends, family and LOTS OF TOYS to contribute to the cause! Please note, however, that it is NOT mandatory to bring a toy. You may also come and simply enjoy the festive, holiday camaraderie!

The San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program started over 50 years ago when a few local firefighters wanted to help some families who lost their homes and possessions in a fire. Today they collect and give away toys to tens of thousands of area children every year. Your donation of a NEW, UNWRAPPED gift could include art supplies, crafts, games, toys, dolls, sports equipment or books (they have a particular need for sports equipment and dolls of color). It’s a small gesture with an enormous impact in the life of a child. Please join us and share in the giving!

You can either bring a toy to the party or you can bring it to Strut in advance. A BARREL FOR DEPOSITING TOYS WILL BE PLACED AT STRUT FROM MID-NOVEMBER TO MID-DECEMBER.

If you have questions about this event, please contact Bridgemen Coordinator Alex Ray here on Meetup or by email at [masked]. See you there!
