Kids served in 2019
WHAT WE DO
Toys for Kids gives the gifts of toys, scholarships, back to school supplies and more to homeless disadvantaged children and families in Washington State.
WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Our mission is to ensure children and families, less fortunate, know they have not been forgotten.
Donation directly benefit children in need throughout the state of Washington. Annually we serve more then 14,000 kids throughout the year. Often the toys we give them are the only ones they will received. Sometimes, it’s the only toy they have ever received.
Every year we raise money for some of the less fortunate in our community. Proceeds will benefit the kids and families who need it most!
Dollars raised since 2000
Your financial support allows us to keep doing what we do: giving kids in our community the hope and strength to achieve their full potential.
There are many ways you can give and make a difference. Donating online is the fastest, easiest way to join the Toys for Kids mission and help a kid. All it takes is a click of our mouse. Other ways to give is monthly giving, stocks & bonds, attend one of our events.
Toys For Kids Programs
DAVE “HENDU” HENDERSON SCHOLARSHIP
Dave “Hendu” Henderson Education Scholarship was established to recognize outstanding high school seniors who exemplifies the high standards and community that Dave believed in.
Back To School
Providing school children with essential supplies they need to learn can be expensive, but Toys for Kids is here to help. Items such as backpacks, pens, paper, or other basic supplies are donated to the kids in Washington State.
F.L.Y – FIRST LOVE YOURSELF
Toys for Kids partners with a local hair salon to give the parents of domestic violence and homeless shelters a day to feel special and spread their wings. They are treated to haircuts, manicures, and even get their make up done by Hologram Beauty.
With the funds that we raise, through the generosity of our sponsors and individual donors, we are able to make sure that Santa Claus is alive, well, and will show up for the kids during the holidays.
Many children depend on a nutritious lunch to help them through their school day. Every year, Toys for Kids picks a school district to pay off their hot lunch debt. 44% of Washington State kids are on free or reduced lunch.
Toys for Kids works with companies, governments, nonprofits and other organizations. Our partners contribute more than money. Their ideas, volunteer power, in-kind support and more are helping build stronger communities.
Toys For Kids Events
Toys for Kids partners with the Joker Pub to raise valuable support for our local youth. This bowling tournament is the perfect way for individuals to make an impact on our community – it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money that is vital to our program’s success.
The TFK Breakfast is our annual celebration, where breakfast is on us! We gather to honor our youth, our agencies, and our Community Partner of the Year. This is our first year, where 300 people gather to celebrate and support our programs and youth that YOU help support.
CHRISTMAS IN JULY
Toys for Kids takes 350 kids from the different agencies that we serve to a Seattle Mariners game. For most of these kids, this will be the first game they will be attending. Many of the Seattle Mariner’s current and former players come to visit the kids to show them support.
TOYS FOR KIDS MISSION IS TO ENSURE CHILDREN, LESS FORTUNATE, KNOW THEY HAVE NOT BEEN FORGOTTEN.
PURCHASE TICKETS TO GALA
The 20th annual Winter Gala is the single largest fundraiser benefiting Toys for Kids. It features once in a lifetime auction items and a beautiful dinner.
Giving kids hope and joy requires a lot of man-hours. Which is why we love our volunteers! You guys rock. You’re the backbone of the operation.
