Holiday Express Toy Drive 2020

The SMART Holiday Express Toy Drive is here for the fifth year in a row! This year, we’re partnering with organizations in Marin and Sonoma counties to collect unwrapped toys to help local families in need. Join community nonprofits, first responders and local organizations for a safe and festive way to serve those in need.

Donate a new, unwrapped toy at one of our drive thru drop-off events and get a ticket for a free ride on the SMART train! Volunteers from local law enforcement agencies and fire fighters will be on site, with their decorated vehicles, collecting toys at the drive through events. You can also donate canned goods and non-perishable food items to the Redwood Empire Foodbank to benefit local families this holiday season.


Take a stroll through the festively decorated Holiday Express Train display! Please note that passengers will not be able to ride the Holiday Express train during this event, but you can catch the decorated train during regular service through January 1! Masks and social distancing are required at this event.

Together, we can make the holidays bright for local children in need.
