Play Comforts Delivers Thousands of Toys to Military Families Deployed Overseas

On October 22nd partners from the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and Boys and Girls Clubs of America joined forces for a special toy distribution and Halloween carnival for Army and Air Force families stationed in Germany. More than 7,000 servicemen and women and their children gathered to take part in the fall festivities which included face painting, bouncy castles, and a spooktacular costume parade. The giveaway was the last distribution of the year and the second international event for the partnership that began in 2009.

“We are so proud to host this wonderful event, not only for the children located right here in Ramstein and Vogelweh Air Force Bases, but throughout the Kaiserslautern Military Community,” shared Josie Cordova, Chief of Airman and Family Services Flight. Families representing  Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, USAG Kaiserslautern and USAG Baumholder were also in attendance.

Special thanks to Toy Bank donors ALEX, American Plastic Toys, Bruder Toys, Buffalo Games, LEGO Systems, Hasbro, Mattel, Inc., Prestige Toy Corp., Ravensburger USA, Inc., Schleich and USAopoly for their contributions.
