The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) has reported giving brand-new toys to nearly 300,000 children in need since the beginning of the year, thanks to toy and financial donations received from throughout the industry.
This year alone, TIF has already brought play to more than 7,000 children living on U.S. military bases and 64,000 children in foster care through its national partnerships with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) Military Services and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children, respectively. TIF has also provided CASA with funding to recruit and train one-on-one advocates for kids in the family court system, and has donated toys to 50 children’s charities across North America and beyond in partnership with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers.
Companies can fill out an online form to make a toy donation, and individual or corporate financial donations can also be made to help support TIF’s programs. Interested parties can contact TIF manager Marisa Medina at (646) 454-5581 or email her at email@example.com.
