Teamwork makes the dream work, as the saying goes, and it can also spread holiday joy. That was the case when the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda (AHA), in partnership with the Alameda Firefighters Toy Program, hosted a holiday gift card distribution event on Friday, December 16 at AHA’s Esperanza housing community, located at 1901 Third St.

A total of 208 AHA households registered for the event, and 477 AHA children aged 17 and younger received a $35 Target gift card from the Alameda Firefighters Toy Program. In addition to the gift cards, each household received a raffle ticket to select a toy donated by a toy drive organized by College of Alameda staff.

AHA expressed special thanks to Alameda Firefighters Toy Program volunteers for their diligent and impactful work.
