NEWS RELEASE 12/15/09: Longshoremen Donate $10,000 in Toys to Toy N Joy Makers




The men and women of International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local #8 are stepping up – again – this year. Portland Fire & Rescue Toy N Joy Maker's "Head Elf", Dean Johnson, will arrive to pick up approximately $10,000 worth of toys from the International Longshore and Warehouse Union's offices at 2435 NW Front Avenue in Portland, Oregon. 


In this sluggish economy donations to charities are down; Portland Fire & Rescue Toy ‘N' Joy Makers is no exception. Toys and cash donations are hard to come by this year and, because of the slow economy, more families are in need than ever before. 


Portland Fire & Rescue Toy N Joy Makers help the needs of low-income families in the Portland area to give their children toys for Christmas. The Portland Toy N Joy Makers started giving toys to needy children in 1914. Everyone can help by dropping new, unwrapped toys at any Portland Fire & Rescue station throughout the holiday season. This year we need everyone's help to make the holidays special for those less fortunate.
