Toys for Tots is continuing its partnership with Good360 — the global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving — as part of the company’s year-long efforts to provide hope for those less fortunate. This summer, the two companies are collaborating to give away one million educational toys, books, and games to the kids of COVID-19 impacted families.
These kids likely suffered a greater learning loss by not being able to attend in-person classes during the pandemic. Toys for Tots’s donation will provide kids with educational toys and books that aim to help them overcome this gap and stimulate their young minds. The one million donated toys, books, and games will be distributed via Good360’s network of nonprofit organizations across the U.S.
“Toys for Tots is more than a Christmas charity — that is why we want to DoGoodNOW and continue to expand our partnership with Good360,” says Lieutenant General Jim Laster, president and CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “With the assistance of Good360 and their vast network of nonprofits throughout the country, Toys for Tots has the ability to extend our reach and provide support to families who are facing tremendous year-round challenges.”
Toys for Tots and Good360 launched their collaboration in April 2020 and have since distributed three million toys, games, and books together outside of the holiday season.
