ABC7 is working to help children in need throughout the Bay Area get toys for the holiday.
You can donate new, unwrapped toys in the TOYS FOR TOTS boxes. Toys for children of all ages are welcome.
You can also organize a toy drive by reaching out to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
For more than 60 years, The Walt Disney Company has supported the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation as a way to connect with children and families in need during the holiday season. Our relationship with Toys for Tots began in 1948 when Walt Disney and his animators personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo that is still used today. Every year, Disney and DATG join the hundreds of communities across the country to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.
This year marks a quarter of a century ABC7 has partnered with Bay Area food banks to help feed our communities with our annual food drive.

We have teamed up with Feeding America to inspire a healthier generation. Together we will expand access to fresh produce and nutritious foods in communities where kids and families need it most. ABC and Disney announced a $1 million donation to Feeding America to help strengthen local produce programs across the country. This support will expand Feeding America's Produce and Healthy Food Initiative, which empowers the network of food banks to develop creative approaches to rescuing and distributing more fresh produce for underserved families and communities. Our Bay Area Food Banks is a part of the Feeding America coalition.
