“Toys Across America” Single-Day Distribution to Bring Toys to Kids in Need in All 50 States
June 18, 2013 | To help commemorate The Toy Bank’s 10th anniversary, the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) will host “Toys Across America” – an initiative that will bring brand new toys and games to children in all 50 states on Thursday, August 1st.
“Toys Across America will be the first-ever single-day nationwide toy giveaway, with children in need served by charities in every state receiving playthings from TIF’s Toy Bank program,” explained Jean Butler, TIF Executive Director. “At select charity sites, the Foundation will also host live celebrations. We are so excited to celebrate TIF’s 10th year with such a spectacular event!”
Generous toy companies who donate product or help sponsor this initiative will bring smiles to the faces of thousands of children across the nation this summer who are impoverished, ill, homeless, or otherwise underserved.
Corporate sponsors will have their company logo displayed on the TIF website and Facebook page, as well as on sponsorship posters and cakes at event sites. They will also be mentioned in the official event press release; thanked during the event’s live online broadcast; and will gain exposure to local press invited to the distributions.
