The Toy Foundation (TTF) and Dream Center hosted the Play Your Part charity event, where kids facing abuse, homelessness, hunger, other adversities in the Los Angeles area received new toys and games from local toy companies.
More than 30 local toy companies—including Educational Insights, Jakks Pacific, Mattel, Razor, and more—participated in the event with toy donations, sponsored activity stations, or company volunteers at the event. TTF’s Toy Bank received more than 20,000 toys donated by manufacturers, retailers, and distributors.
Volunteers led company-sponsored activity stations for the kids, as well as filled thousands of gift bags with new toys that will be distributed by the Dream Center and TTF’s logistics partner, World Vision, to underprivileged youth during the holiday season and to World Vision’s Teacher Resource Center.
Event sponsors included Disney, Educational Insights, GennComm, Jakks Pacific, Mattel, WowWee, NBCUniversal, Playmates, Thames & Kosmos, Women in Toys, and more.
