Holiday train collects 2,500 toys for Salvation Army, Toys for Tots

 

The Caltrain Holiday Train, which runs along the Peninsula in early December and is organized by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, collected more than 2,500 toys for Bay Area children this year.

Since the first Holiday Train in 2001, more than 50,000 toys have been collected and donated to the Salvation Army and the U.S. Marine Corp Reserve's Toys for Tots program, the organizers say.

Volunteers worked every Saturday for two months decorating the train and volunteers also passed out candy canes and programs at the train stations. Local entertainers provided free entertainment at each station before the train arrived, says Caltrain spokesman Tasha Bartholomew.
