TIF Summer Toy Drive to End August 31

There is still a month left to donate to the Toy Industry Foundation’s Summer Toy Drive. To date, TIF has reached a third of its goal and has collected more than 100,000 toys for children in need. The foundation’s goal is to collect 300,000 toys for The Toy Bank by August 31.

Donations to The Toy Bank service a variety of programs including Play Comforts, an organization that partners with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Military Services to help children with a parent deployed overseas; My Stuff Bags Foundation, which helps to  comfort abused and neglected children entering crisis and foster care; and Play Heals, which services young patients at Ronald McDonald Houses.

Toy Industry Foundation plans to “Set Sail for Summer”

The Toy Industry Association‘s (TIA) philanthropic offshoot, the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF), invites vendors to “Set Sail for Summer” during a partnered event with the Ronald McDonald House in Manhattan.

TIF plans to treat kids to “nautical crafts, tropical refreshments, and a toy distribution” during the event June 21 at 6 P.M. Nationally, TIF distributes toys to other Houses under its Play Heals program.

To RSVP for the event, contact TIF’s manager, Amanda McDorman, at amcdorman@toyindustryfoundation.org or (646) 520-4878.
