Toy N Joy Makers Helps Over 2,500 Portland Families this Holiday Season

Today, the folks from Toy N Joy Makers released their stats from the 2013 season. The organization, started within Portland Fire & Rescue and fueled by volunteers and firefighters, collects and distributes toys to Portland families in need. Started in 2014 and sparked when one firefighter fixed an old wagon for a neighborhood boy, the program is now a local institution counted on by countless families and organizations. For the 2013 season, Toy N Joy gave gifts to 10,256 children. Almost 50,000 toys were distributed, with 91 businesses and organizations helping by hosting and filling toy collection boxes.

Next year the program celebrates its 100th year of giving: it will be the best year yet!
