Toyota's San Ramon office builds playhouses for military families

Six toy structures donated through Habitat for Humanity and Blue Star Moms

Toyota's regional office in Bishop Ranch shut down Friday morning so workers could build playhouses for children and families of U.S. military service members.

In partnership with Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley, 67 Toyota workers in San Ramon assembled six playhouses donated to military families through the nonprofit organization Blue Star Moms, according to Toyota representatives.

The recipient military families arrived for the presentation ceremony and lunch at 2452 Bishop Drive that afternoon, company officials said. The playhouses were then disassembled for transport by the families to their homes.

Toyota also donated $9,000 to Habitat for Humanity during the ceremony, company officials said.
