The Foothill Unity Center is a local non-profit organization that assists many local families in need.  The Arcadia Firefighters have donated many toys to the Foothill Unity Center located in Monrovia during their annual toy drive and distribution for the Christmas season.  The Arcadia Firefighters were able to participate in their annual Christmas toy drive at the Arboretum by assisting families load food, toys, christmas trees, and other various holiday items into personal vehicles. The Arcadia Firefighters also helped out behind the scenes by filling shopping carts full of Christmas dinner treats and helping with the event registration. The AFFA will continue to partner with The Foothill Unity Center in future events.

Foothill Unity Center is among the most respected and effective local nonprofit organizations in Southern California. In the past year, the Center has distributed literally millions of pounds of food to over 2,200 unduplicated very low-income families in the cities of Pasadena, Altadena and South Pasadena, Monrovia, Arcadia, Duarte, Sierra Madre, Bradbury, Baldwin Park, Irwindale and Azusa. The Center provides vital assistance to help those in crisis to become self sufficient. It also offers special programs for children of low-income families.
