BOMA SF/SFFD Toy Drive 2021


For over a quarter of a century, BOMA SF members and their tenants have been the largest contributor of toys to this annual program that serves over 40,000 local families. For the 2021 collection program, we are offering the option of lobby barrels as well as virtual ordering.
 

What are Options to Contribute Toys for 2021? 

Reserve a Toy Barrel for your Lobby (Reservation period is now closed)

After surveying member buildings, a majority wanted the opportunity to place a barrel in the lobby to collect toys from tenants.  To reserve your barrel, you must complete the Toy Barrel Reservation form here by Nov. 1.  Barrels will be delivered week of November 8 – 12 (exclusive of Nov. 11, Veteran’s Day).  Barrels and toys will be retrieved week of December 13 – 17.  After reservations are received and the delivery route is established you'll receive an email approximately Nov. 3-5 with your assigned drop off and pick up day during those specified weeks.  This can't be changed and is based on our volunteer resources and defined delivery routes. Questions about barrels should be sent to Tory Brubaker, toryb@boma.com
 

Virtual Toy Drive

SFFD Toy Drive has contracted with a company called YOU GIVE GOODS and using this option tracks how many toys are donated via BOMA SF, its members and their tenants.  
Share this link (https://yougivegoods.com/bomasf-toydrive2021) with all of your supporters/tenants. The toys will be delivered directly to SFFD Toy HQ.
