KSBY’s annual Season of Hope food and toy drive is almost over for the year.

Friday, Dec. 14, is the final day to donate to the campaign.

Over the past few months, community members, businesses, organizations and more have come together and made generous donations to help our neighbors in need this holiday season.

Donations of new, unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items can be dropped off at any fire station in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties or the California Highway Patrol offices in San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Buellton, and Santa Barbara. Other drop-off locations include Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, Twin Cities Community Hospital, Idler’s Home, Paso Robles Kia, Coastal Communities Physician Network offices, Pacific Coast RV, Pacific Premier Bank, and the KSBY studio.

All food, toy, and financial contributions will remain on the Central Coast.

If you’d like to make a donation on the final day of the campaign, head to any of the above drop-off locations or stop by the KSBY studio in San Luis Obispo. Donations will be accepted until 7 p.m. at KSBY.

Financial contributions are also accepted.
