Registration Open: Play Your Part to Help Kids in SoCal Foster Care System

March 14, 2014 | Registration is now open for the Toy Industry Foundation’s (TIF) upcoming “Play Your Part” volunteer and networking event, scheduled to take place on Friday, May 16th in Gardena, CA. The event (including lunch) will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beverly Hills Transfer and Storage.

Toy professionals will spend the afternoon catching up with old friends and meeting new contacts as they assemble 6,000 gift packages of brand new toys and write personalized notes to be sent to Southern California foster children served by TIF national partner, CASA for Children.  

“This event is a great way to have some fun and network with industry colleagues while making a difference in the lives of children who need our support!” said Marisa Medina, TIF manager. “We look forward to working together with corporate teams and individuals from toy companies to bring the joy of toys and play to thousands of children who are waiting to be placed in loving, safe and permanent homes.”

Corporate teams and individual volunteers who would like to participate may register via email; toy donations for the gift packages and corporate sponsors are also needed.
