Zephyr Real Estate Promotes Annual Holiday Food and Toy Drive


San Francisco, CA – December 1, 2014– The San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program and the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank are the beneficiaries for Zephyr’s annual holiday food and toy drive. Donations may be made at any of the five Zephyr office locations in San Francisco: 2282 Market Street, 4040 24th Street, 2523 California Street, 1542 20th Street, and 215 West Portal Avenue.


Zephyr Real Estate is an annual supporter of these two worthwhile and credible organizations. Donations should be made by December 19, when the barrels will be collected and delivered to the respective organizations.


Each year, the SF Firefighters Toy Programdistributes approximately 40,000 toys during the holidays to more than 25,000 children. Dependent solely upon donations, this program is the City’s largest of its kind, as well as the nation’s oldest, and has been actively brightening the holidays for disadvantaged children since 1949. Donation suggestions from the Program include sports equipment, arts and crafts, baby items (blankets, bottles, rattles), dolls of all nationalities, stuffed animals, iPods, game systems with games, books and toy trucks. This year the Firefighters are trying to get 1,000 copies of the Giving Book by Ellin Sabin, an inspiring story about giving back to the world.


Besides helping individual families in need, the Toy Program serves many community organizations, including shelters for abused women and children, inner-city schools, children’s cancer wards, and pediatric AIDS units. 


The SF-Marin Food Bankdistributes food to more than 225,000 people during the holidays. Over 107,000 meals will be provided daily, and 30,000 families will receive wholesome foods at the Bank’s pantries weekly. 10,000 children will be served healthy snacks in the classroom each school day, and 450 community partners will receive supplies for their meal and food programs.



More than 25,000 volunteers make this program work to get the most value from each donation and to get the food where it is needed most. Food items should be non-perishable. Most-needed foods are soup, chili, beans, canned vegetables, tuna, canned meat, cereal, peanut butter and granola bars (no glass containers, please). Cash donations and gift cards are always welcome. The Food Bank’s buying power can distribute approximately $6 worth of food for every $1 donation.


“An important part of the holiday season is charitable giving,” remarked Randall Kostick, President of Zephyr Real Estate. “Our agents, managers and clients have always been generous in sharing our abundance, and it’s a tradition worth keeping.”
