KIDS WANT PARTNERS WITH THE TOY BANK IN CHARITABLE
DONATION TO LOS ANGELES NEEDY
CA - What Kids Want recently donated toys to MSM Economic Development
Corp., a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering undeserved
urban communities. The donation was coordinated by The Toy Bank,
a partnership between Gifts In Kind International, the leader in
product philanthropy and the 3rd largest charity in the U.S., and
the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF), the philanthropic arm of the
Toy Industry Association (TIA).
Development Corp., provides basic tools to improve the quality of
life of low-income families in Los Angeles County. MSM and What
Kids Want came together with help from the Toy Industry Foundation.
Since its inception in May 2003, more than 200,000 disadvantaged
kids have received toys through The Toy Bank, which links TIA member
companies with charitable organizations nationwide. TIF's goal is
to unite the toy industry as a catalyst in bringing joy, happiness
and comfort to children in need through the experience of toys and
Bank's efficiency and professionalism in handling our donation was
impressive," said Dave Schwartz, Senior V.P., Marketing with
What Kids Want. "Immediately after receiving our inquiry, we
were placed in touch with MSM, and the result is that numerous toys
are now being distributed to the community's neediest children."
