Toys for Kids supports homeless and disadvantaged children throughout the year, filling their hearts with hope and joy.
Founded by Mariners broadcaster Rick Rizzs and former Mariners center fielder Dave Henderson, over 90% of all donations directly benefit children. Over the last 22 years, Toys for Kids has raised over $1 million dollars, purchased brand new toys for over 200,000 children in Washington State and have hosted over 60 holiday parties to benefit children in need. More than 10,000 toys are given on a yearly basis.
Total Toys Purchased Through Holiday Program
Our annual Winter Gala is our largest fundraiser for Toys for Kids.
The Toys for Kids donations directly benefit children in need throughout the state of Washington. The money raised help support Toys for Kids eight different programs. Often the toys we give them during the holidays are the only ones they receive. Sometimes, it’s the only toy they have ever received.
