The Richmond Fire & Police Holiday Food and Toy Program was inspired back in 1989 by firefighter Rod Woods, who organized a toy drive. Meanwhile, the Richmond Police Department had been running a food drive. After many years of growing their separate programs, Fire and Police united as one, with the Chevron Fire Department also stepping up and adding its support.
