Save the Date – May 16: Toy Industry Foundation to Hold Annual “Play Your Part” Volunteer Event

February 25, 2014 | The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) announced today that its annual “Play Your Part” volunteer event will take place on Friday, May 16 in Los Angeles, CA. Corporate teams and individuals from within the toy industry are invited to participate in this annual gathering, where they will create care packages filled with toys and write personal notes of encouragement to be delivered to foster children served by TIF national partner CASA for Children.

“Care packages created on this day will be delivered to thousands of kids in foster care who are waiting to be placed in loving, permanent homes,” said Marisa Medina, TIF manager. “It’s a truly important event that brings the toy industry together for a fun-filled day of both networking and giving back to children in need!”

Information about registration, sponsorship opportunities, and how to donate toys for this event will be announced in the coming weeks and will be available at ToyIndustryFoundation.org.
