It’s a Tradition: LightHouse Holiday Food and Toy Drive

Please join LightHouse and the Bay Area blind community this holiday season in helping those who will really smile at our caring gifts, as we host our 2nd Annual LightHouse Food and Toy Drive. From November 1st through December 15th LightHouse will be collecting canned and dried food goods for the San Francisco Food Bank, as well as unwrapped toys for Blind Babies Foundation (a partial list of suggested toys that have been proven to be some of the most stimulating for blind and low vision infants and toddlers can be found below). New toys in original packaging are greatly appreciated. To ensure families and children receive the toys in time for the holidays, LightHouse humbly requests that all toy donations be made by December 1 to ensure a December 2nd delivery to Blind Babies.

Barrels for both food and toys will be located in the downstairs lobby of LightHouse San Francisco Headquarters at 214 Van Ness Ave. Building off of last year’s success, we hope to collect at least 300 pounds of food and three barrels of toys this year. Each donor will be registered to win a $25.00 gift certificate through Adaptations, the LightHouse store.

Together we can make the holidays shine a little brighter for those in need. For more information, please contact John Liang, Director of Community Services at (415) 694-7334 or
