This year, Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) collected toys for 350,000 kids in need, with distribution to 20 U.S. Military bases and 40,000 foster kids. To reach its year-end goal, the TIF needs 1 million more toys to collect, 15 U.S. Military bases to reach, and 40,000 additional foster kids to serve.
Last year, TIF impacted the lives of 1 million struggling families and kids in need worldwide. Toys traveled across 43 states and were delivered to more than 175 charities that benefit kids living in poverty, suffering from abuse, coping with life-threatening illnesses, or recovering from the aftermath of a natural disaster.
There will be a Toy Bank Collection at Fall Toy Preview Dallas, and a Toy Distribution for 800 U.S. Coast Guard families stationed in Kodiak, Alaska on Oct. 22, where toys are needed for boys and girls ages 0 to 12 by Sept. 7. Click here for a toy donation form.
