This Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., members of the toy industry will join forces with the Toy Industry Foundation and the My Stuff Bags Foundation to fill approximately 5,000 duffel bags with toys, toiletries, and handmade items. The “Do Good Stuff-a-Thon” bags will be distributed to shelters and foster care agencies across the United States.
Representatives from across the toy and children’s entertainment industries will include employees from Disney, Educational Insights, JAKKS Pacific, Pacific Play Tents, and more. Other companies, such as Hasbro, iToys, and Schoenhut Piano Company, have provided product for the bags.
California legislators and local media will also be working side-by-side with toy industry volunteers. Legislators will include Sen. Curren Price, Sen. Tony Strickland, Sen. Fran Pavley, Assembly Member Fiona Ma, and Assembly Member Audra Strickland.
The My Stuff Bags Volunteer Center is located at 5347 Sterling Center Dr. in Westlake Village, Calif.
The Toy Industry Foundation has made a minimum two-year commitment to provide $400,000 and 50,000 new toys per year to the My Stuff Bags Foundation via The Toy Bank.
