Redwood City-based Leapset will donate $2 to the Redwood City Fire Department, Police Department and Police Activities League Toy and Book Drive, for every restaurant order placed through Leapset in any of its Redwood City or San Mateo locations (up to a maximum donation of $5,000). Orders may be placed online at www.leapset.com/order — the code RWCPAL must be entered at checkout. In addition, Ike’s Lair in Redwood City will donate an additional $1 every time the code is used. Collectively, PAL will receive a total of $3 for every eligible online order for Ike’s Lair through Leapset. The donation offer continues through Jan. 31.
The Redwood City Police and Fire Departments and Redwood City Police Activities League are coordinating the Christmas Toy and Book Drive to bring the holiday spirit right to the doorstep of many needy families. It’s an annual event that is a welcome tradition in the Redwood City community, and Leapset is now part of this holiday effort. For more information visit www.toydriverwc.com.
Through the second annual "Cans For Fans” virtual food drive on Facebook, Mollie Stone’s Markets will donate a can of food to Bay Area food banks on behalf of its Facebook followers. Each can that is donated by Mollie Stone’s will be matched with a can of organic soup from Amy’s Kitchen, doubling the impact in the local community.
To make a free donation, anyone may like Mollie Stone’s Facebook page facebook.com/molliestonesmarkets and use the Cans For Fans application to designate their local food bank to receive two cans of food. The virtual can drive ends Jan. 4, after which Mollie Stone’s and Amy’s will present the donation to the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
