The Toy Bank
The Toy Industry Foundation collects millions of toys from toy companies and distributes them to thousands of children’s charities around the globe, with the help of our Toy Bank partner, Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.). Together, we make play possible for families struggling in poverty, foster children, military families, kids undergoing cancer treatments, children with special needs, and many others.
Donate toys now! Manufacturers, retailers, licensors, and distributors should download our donation form (.pdf) to share the joy of play with children in need all year long.
