Long, long ago before ‘Star Wars’ came out


Sunday’s Child Foundation recently helped to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Toy Bank by participating in Toys Across America, a simultaneous distribution of toys and games to kids in need in all 50 states. The Toy Bank is a signature program of the Toy Industry Foundation, the philanthropic organization representing the entire North American toy industry.

More than 10 million deserving children in the U.S. and around the world have received toys.

Working together with the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and Kids in Distressed Situations, the Toy Bank’s distribution partner, Sunday’s Child Foundation and local charities across the country joined together for the 10th anniversary celebration and toy distribution.

Sunday’s Child Foundation was thrilled to be part of the Toy Bank’s celebration.

Because of the generosity of the toy industry and TIF, we have been able to provide toys to children in our community who may not always have access to the things that many of us take for granted.

The Toy Bank relies upon the generosity of the toy companies that have donated toys worth more than $80 million during the past decade, and the network of charities that get toys directly into the hands of children who truly need them.

Sunday’s Child Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Waimea which works to serve residents of the entire state in the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
