A toy drive for families affected by the Northern California fires will be conducted Thursday by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department’s Youth Services Unit, in partnership with Walmart.

The sheriff’s Youth Services Unit typically focuses on youth in the community. In addition to toys, donations of essential items such as packaged underwear, feminine products, diapers and other related hygiene items are welcome, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release.

Members of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department will deliver all donated items to designated sites on Friday.
