Toy Industry Foundation Recognizes New “Power Players”

The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) has recently recognized iToys, Inc. and USAopoly as “Power Players,” in honor of their ongoing support of The Toy Bank.

iToys, Inc. has donated to the program every year since its inception in 2003. Most recently, the company contributed 10,000 toys for foster children across the company in TIF’s Do-Good-Stuff-a-Thon.

USAopoly also donates to the Toy Bank annually and most recently contributed to a Play Comforts event in May. TIF and national partner Boys & Girls Clubs of America Military Services distributed toys to thousands of military family members in San Diego, including a donation of games from USAopoly.
