Toy donations will go to organizations that directly help kids.
Cra-Z-Art, a prime manufacturer and leader in trendy toy, activity, art and school supply products, has teamed up with a number of prominent charitable organizations, including Toys for Tots, The Toy Foundation and Filling in the Blanks (FIB), to donate toys to children in need during the holiday season.
Cra-Z-Art will donate approximately $10,000 worth of merchandise this season including Shimmer ‘n Sparkle craft and activity sets, art kits, Magtastix magnetic construction kits, and their popular Nickelodeon branded slime kits. All of these items allow kids to be creative and explore a fun world of imaginative play while also encouraging STEM learning. The items will go to children in the New York City, Philadelphia and Boston areas.
Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Forces Reserve, which collects and distributes toys to children whose families cannot afford to purchase such items for the holidays. The Toy Foundation provides joy and comfort to children in need through the experience of toys and play. Filling in the Blanks fights childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekend.
“Cra-Z-Art is very proud to have partnered with great organizations like Toys for Tots, The Toy Foundation and Filling in the Blanks to help kids in need and make this holiday season a little brighter. We’re extremely happy to be in a position to help out,” said Cra-Z-Art Chairman, Lawrence Rosen. “Hopefully, our donation of toys and art supplies will spread good cheer among these children who are less fortunate.”
The donations are scheduled to be delivered over the next couple of weeks.
