TIF Welcomes New Toy Bank Contributors

May 18, 2012 | The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF), the philanthropic arm of the North American toy industry, thanks the following five (5) companies for their first-ever donation to The Toy Bank in April 2012:

Grant & Bowman, Inc.
Piggy Wiggies
Custard ‘n Jelly

Toys donated to The Toy Bank in April supported the Do Good Stuff-a-thon (May 11), which benefited foster care children rescued from abuse or neglect. The Toy Bank supports TIF’s partnerships with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America Military Services and My Stuff Bags Foundation; toys are also distributed to charities across the U.S. and Canada through Toy Bank partner Kids in Distressed Situations.

All Toy Bank donors have their company name listed on the TIF website, in the TIF Annual Report, and in TOTY Tribute Book, and may request an official Toy Bank Supporter badge for use on their company website. 

Since its inception in 2003, The Toy Bank has collected more than $68 million in toys from more than 1,300 companies. For more information about making a product donation or to participate in the Summer Toy Drive, please contact Foundation Coordinator Melissa Kipp at 646-520-4878.
