San Francisco, Calif.
San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA)
The SFMTA begins the holiday season with its annual toy drive. Started by the agency’s traffic enforcement division in 1997 to share some of the joy of the season with children from low-income families who are cared for through the San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) Volunteer Center and the SFGH Community Health Centers. Last year the SFMTA mobilized 15 collection locations and donated 630 new, unwrapped toys.
For the past 28 years, the operators and mechanics of San Francisco’s most recognizable icon, the cable car, have celebrated the season with San Francisco’s seniors by hosting a holiday lunch. The Cable Car Holiday Seniors Lunch, prepared and served by SFMTA cable car staff, provides a warm, festive holiday meal for seniors from throughout the city. The Cable Car Division employees organize and prepare the lunch with the help of several generous local businesses.
