Holiday toy drive
There is still time to donate toys to the Woodside Fire Protection District's annual drive. Toys may be dropped off at any of the district's fire stations.
Each year firefighters volunteer their time collecting, wrapping, and delivering toys to low-income families. The toys are delivered in a fire engine with Santa on board.
The Woodside Fire Protection District serves Woodside, Portola Valley, and the areas of Emerald Hills, Ladera, Los Trancos Woods, Skyline, and Vista Verde in San Mateo County.
