Holiday Toys Across America: Bringing Toys to Thousands of Kids in Need in All 50 States
The holiday season brings joy and celebration to kids throughout the country and the world. Who doesn’t love opening a present and experiencing the joy of something new? Unfortunately, not all kids get a chance to celebrate the holidays in this way. Children throughout the United States and the world go without gifts and new toys during the holiday season. That is why Delivering Good and The Toy Foundation are proud of the success of our Holiday Toys Across America campaign. In 2019, we worked to make sure that kids in need celebrate the holidays in style—with new toys to unwrap and play with!
In 2019, Delivering Good and the Toy Foundation distributed toys to kids in need in all 50 states and Washington D.C. in time for the holiday season.
We’ve Reached All 50 States!
Our Holiday Toys Across America campaign culminated with a very special event and flagship toy distribution on December 4. The Toy Foundation, Delivering Good, and Variety – The Children’s Charity of Detroit in Southfield, Michigan, partnered to bring a fun-filled day of play and brand-new toys to more than 500 underserved children, ranging in age from 2 to 16, in attendance.
The event was live-streamed with media, local toy company representatives and volunteers in attendance to lend a hand in toy distribution. Celebrations included appearances by Santa Claus and Paws, the Detroit Tigers mascot, activities and refreshments. Event sponsors included Target, Domino’s Pizza, the City of Southfield and Franks, among others.
