Kiwanis Joins Firefighters’ Toy Drive
During the week of Dec. 15, Alameda Kiwanis joined the Alameda Firefighters Toy Drive at Christ Church Episcopal Church. Club members sorted toys gathered in barrels at local businesses in the church parish hall, transforming it into a huge toy store. On Dec. 20 to 21, as Alameda families came to collect their holiday gifts, with volunteers spoke to the children and assessed their wish lists. The Kiwanis and Church elves then went into the toy store to shop and emerged with a bagful of custom-selected toys for each family.
