In time for Thanksgiving, representatives from the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) will deliver new toys and games to more than 5,000 children at Florida’s MacDill Air Force Base.
The event, to be held November 17, will be the latest and largest event during the first year of the new TIF-BGCA Play Comforts partnership. Senior MacDill Air Force officials will be on-hand to accept the toys on behalf of the Air Force community. According to TIF, Play Comforts is the only known toy distribution program to support every branch of the U.S. military. TIF plans to distribute 25,000 toys to military children through the Play Comforts partnership by the end of the year.
