Lefty O'Doul's Foundation For Kids

Lefty O’Doul’s Foundation for Kids was established in loving memory of Frank “Lefty” O’Doul. Lefty loved kids and wanted them to enjoy life and baseball. One way he would accomplish this is by tossing baseballs to kids in the left-field bleachers at Recreation Park while he played baseball for the San Francisco Seals. In order to help stop this practice, Seals owner, Charlie Grahm, agreed to sponsor a “Kids Day” in 1927. On this day approximately 10,000 kids filed into Recreation Park in San Francisco to receive miniature baseball bats, peanuts and baseballs. Approximately 5,000 bats, thousands of peanuts and half a dozen flour sacks full of baseballs were distributed to the young fans that attended. One by one, O’Doul tossed the baseballs from the roof of the park’s grandstand to screaming children in the crowd below. Needless to say, children loved Lefty O’Doul! In honour of Lefty’s love for children, we continue to give children baseball equipment and toys to bring a smile to their face.

Chinatown Child Development Center

(SF Dept of Public Health)

On November 15, 1972, the Chinatown Community Children's Center (CCCC) opened its doors to the families of San Francisco. We were one of the first childcare centers in North America to pioneer a Chinese-English bilingual education model. Almost 3,000 families later, CCCC remains committed to providing high-quality bilingual and bi-cultural programs for San Francisco's children. Every day, our teachers and staff work tirelessly to promote educational achievement, fight poverty and strengthen cultural identity for our students.

SF Police Activities League

Since 1959, thousands of San Francisco youth have participated in PAL activities – kids on every block and every zip code have benefited from the dedication of volunteer adult mentors and role models. From a meager beginning and a handful of kids, SFPAL currently serves almost 5000 youth annually with the help of 800 civilian and police volunteer coaches and mentors through a variety of sports and leadership activities. While many of our volunteers are parent coaches, a significant proportion of our volunteers are PAL alumni themselves who benefited from the program themselves in their youth and choose to give back to the youth in their community with their time, energy and commitment.

Our Mission

We wish you a Merry Christmas

Our annual Christmas Eve Toy Drive brings joy and fond memories to thousands of children in our community. It is one way of letting families know they are remembered during the Holiday Season. This year’s Christmas Eve Toy Drive goal is to collect 10,000 unwrapped toys. Traditionally, our biggest push for toys has been Christmas Eve beginning at 6:00 AM with a last call for toys taking place at 2:00 AM Christmas Morning. We will be providing “Curbside Elves” to carry your toys inside on Christmas Eve at the toy drive headquarters located at the landmark Lefty O’Doul’s Restaurant on 333 Geary Street at Powell Street. 

The Lefty O'Doul's Foundation for Kids is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization (Tax ID # 27-3957446). All donations are tax deductible and can be made through our website www.KidsNeedBaseball.com or www.LeftysToyDrive.com
