More than 1,500 companies have contributed to The Toy Bank over the past decade, bringing brand new playthings into the hands of more than 11 million children in need.

“We truly appreciate the commitment of these 14 companies, whose ongoing support has helped children in many tough situations,” said Jean Butler, TIF executive director. “Together, we are sending a powerful message to the children and families we serve – that the toy industry cares!”

The Toy Bank is the first industry-wide product donation program of its kind.
