Ma hosting holiday party, toy drive

Have you spent quality time with your state Assembly representative lately?

Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, has cordially invited her district’s residents to a holiday party Friday at her San Francisco office, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, Suite 14600.

Guests are invited to bring a new or gently used toy for the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program, which will then distribute the gift to disadvantaged youth.

Speaking of Fiona Ma and firefighters, the Assembly majority whip teamed up with The City’s fire chief and Bothin Burn Center medical director Wednesday morning to ask people to avoid setting anything on fire this holiday.

Firefighters lit a Christmas tree on fire and promptly put it out to emphasize the potential danger of the season.
