Donations to Community Non-Profit Organizations
We consider requests for donations throughout the year. Lots of groups ask for donations and we are not able to grant every request. We often donate toys or gift certificates for silent auctions and other fundraisers for non-profit organizations. We typically do not give cash donations. We are happy to do what we can to support local groups that meet our criteria. We ask those receiving our help not to spend their time writing thank you notes. We are happy to get thanks via Facebook or other social media venues including on-line reviews.
Participation in School Activities
We regularly participate in High Interest Days, Game Nights, and In-School Holiday Fairs in local public and private schools. At these events we bring new toys and games to demonstrate and provide hands-on learning activities.
From time to time we help sponsor neighborhood events such as street festivals and block parties in the community around our toy store in the Jacobus Park neighborhood and around our home in East Tosa. We love these events because we get to meet our neighbors in a fun setting and do some great community-building.
