Toys for Tots 2017

Once again the City of Berkeley Police and Fire Departments (BPD & BFD) are teaming up with the Berkeley Police Officers Association and the U.S. Marine Corp Foundation TOYS FOR TOTS Program in an effort to give back to the community. Last year's campaign saw a tremendous outpouring of generosity from the individuals, organizations and business in our community.  With the generous help of the U.S. Marines and our community, the team is able to distribute over 3000 toys to deserving youth. 

The goal of the program is to deliver a message of hope to youngsters whose families are in need and to support each of them in becoming responsible, productive community members and future leaders.   

TOYS FOR TOTS is open to all City of Berkeley families who pre-register through Eden I & R, Inc.  All registrations must be made through Eden I & R Inc. and can be done by telephoning 2-1-1.  The Berkeley Police & Fire Departments cannot accept registrations.  The following are requirements for eligibility:

  • Applicants must verify Berkeley residency with a utility bill that contains their name and address.
  • Applicants must have photo identification.
  • Applicants must have a Client Code Number that is assigned at the time the application is made over the phone. 
  • Applicants must personally show up for the toy distribution - no substitutions can be accepted.

Qualifying families can register now.  Registration ends at 5:00 p.m. on December 13, 2017.  Toys will be given out to registered families on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at the Ronald T. Tsukamoto Public Safety Building, 2100 Martin Luther King Jr. Way between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. 

People wishing to support TOYS FOR TOTS are invited to drop off new unwrapped toys at any of the City of Berkeley Fire Stations, the Ronald Tsukamoto Public Safety Building (2100 Martin Luther King Jr. Way), or the Modern Combatives Gym (1450 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley).
