We can’t gather together in 2020…but you can still DONATE!!

Help us support our MA children and teens in need.

Scroll down and learn about the $10,000 “Love Tito’s” challenge!!

Toys for Joys is all about community support, holiday joy, and supporting our kids. 2020 has challenged us all in so many ways and the need for help has never been greater. Please, if you can, help us rally and continue to support our mission this year. We wish you a safe and healthy holiday season, and look forward to next year when we can all come together once again.

A Message from the Co-Founders

On behalf of all our amazing volunteers who make Toys for Joys happen every year, we hope you are staying safe through these very challenging times. As you can imagine, we have had to cancel our “2020 Gift Gala” with the threat of Coronavirus, but we know our mission must still be accomplished. This year is probably the most challenging and most important year for our underprivileged children, teens and families with poverty at an all-time high.

Tito’s Handmade Vodka has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to $10,000!!! We have a lofty goal of raising $40,000 this year to provide our partner organizations and the foster system with toys and gifts. Whatever amount you can spare, please know your donation will be put to good use as we pledge to buy toys with every dollar raised this year. Your donation will turn a frown into a smile letting these children and teens know they have not been forgotten.

We started as a small house party in 2002, and we are now a 501c3 organization providing many thousands of toys/gifts each year to underprivileged children throughout the state of Massachusetts. It is with the generosity of friends, family, fantastic corporations, local businesses, and individual sponsors that we have grown. Without this support, we would not be one of the largest donators of gifts to the foster system. It is only with this help that we have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many children giving them a little sense of “hope”.

Finally, we truly give thanks to our wonderful team of volunteer professionals who stick with us year after year, as well as the folks from Gay for Good who also help make our success an actual reality. This is truly a case of “it takes a village”, and we thank every organization and individual who makes Toys for Joys a priority each year.

We wish you a happy and healthy 2020 holiday season, and hope you are able to celebrate your holiday safely with the ones you love.

Sincerely,
Dr. James Rifino
Mr. Harry Pihl
