In the spirit of holiday giving, BART Station Agents and Train Operators (Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 members) are teaming up to host a food and "Toys for Tots" drive. Volunteers will collect non-perishable food items and brand new toys at selected stations through Friday, November 18.
If you would like to donate to families in need, please bring your donations during peak commute hours (6 am - 9 am and 3 pm - 6 pm) to the following stations in Alameda County: Downtown Berkeley, Rockridge, 19th Street, San Leandro, Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont
The non-perishable food and new toys you donate will be distributed by county to families in local communities.
