BELLEVUE FIRE FOUNDATION: Collecting Food and Toys for the Holidays Benefits Children

The Bellevue Firefighters Community Support Foundation is hosting a food and toy drive Nov. 1 through December.  Donations will be accepted at all Bellevue fire station locations and City Hall.

New, unwrapped toys collected for infants, youth and teens received by December 8 will be distributed at the Youth Holiday Party on Dec. 16 at Crossroads Community Center. Non-perishable food collected will provide support during the holidays to our local food banks.

Requested donations include new, unwrapped toys for infants, youth and teens, including books, games, sports equipment, arts and crafts kits, cars/trucks, dolls and plush animals. Ideas for infants include age appropriate plush animals, toys and gift cards for parents to purchase needed items. Ideas for teens include gift certificates to clothing, restaurants, malls and music stores.

The greatest needs for nonperishable food include: canned meals, canned meat, cereal, dry beans, fruit (canned or fresh), pasta, peanut butter, rice, soup, tomato products and vegetables (canned or fresh).

Monetary donations will also be gratefully accepted to help purchase toys or food items. To donate, make checks payable to the Bellevue Firefighters Community Support Foundation.
