Christmas Toy Sorting & Packing - San Francisco

Save to Favorites

The Salvation Army - San Francisco, CA

Christmas 2021 looks a little different from past Holiday Seasons. Instead of our annual Toy & Joy shop, we are pre-selecting and packing toys for each of the families we serve in San Francisco. We need some toy-savvy Santa's Elves (aka volunteers) to help!

Volunteers will select toys from our stock of toy donations and match (as closely as possible) to the toys requested by the families when they signed up. The toys will then be packed into bags and labelled ready for the family to pick up on the distribution day. Volunteers familiar with children aged 0-12 are a plus as they will be more comfortable with matching toys to kids.

We are limiting the number of volunteers to ensure we can follow COVID-19 safety protocols.


  • Tuesday 12/14/20 - Friday 12/17/20
  • 9am - 1pm; 12noon to 4pm.
  • Volunteers can sign up for a morning or afternoon shift, or both.

IMPORTANT: volunteers must register through The Salvation Army website. You will be able to select your preferred shift(s) and complete our required volunteer documentation on-line. (cut and past link into browser)

Thank you for your support! We cannot make Christmas Merry and Bright without your help!

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human need in His name without discrimination.


The Salvation Army was established in London in 1865, and since 1883 has been serving the San Francisco Bay Area, offering practical support, spiritual comfort and a critical safety net to people in need. The safety net is funded in part by donations from the Red Kettle Campaign which started in San Francisco in 1891. Nearly 600,000 San Franciscans receive assistance from the Army annually through a range of social services; clothing and shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, opportunities for underprivileged children, alcohol rehabilitation, transitional housing, nutritional and housing support for seniors and relief for disaster survivors. For every dollar donated to The Salvation Army, 82 cents is used to support those services in the 16 facilities throughout San Francisco and South San Francisco communities.
