ABOUT PORTLAND TOY & JOY MAKERS
Portland Toy & Joy Makers helps the needs of low-income families in the Portland area to give their children toys for Christmas. (We follow federal income guidelines.) Portland Fire & Rescue’s Toy & Joy Makers started giving toys to needy children in 1914.Our current program involves getting ready to set-up our distribution center. We are also setting up programs for our show and tell events. Board members are meeting with businesses who we feel can help us with donations of money, supplies, inventory, PR and building location.
- To provide leadership that encourages community Toy & Joy Makers partnerships that result in helping children and their families.
- To try to ensure that no child should go without receiving gifts for Christmas.
- To reduce a child’s tragedy of losing their toys due to fire, flood, earthquake and other natural or man made disasters.
- To manage the resources and provide the support necessary to accomplish our mission.
