OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence is coordinating a region-wide FREE toy distribution for children during the months of May, June and July – collaborating with nonprofits and corporate sponsors to share some joy with area youth. Please spread the word to your friends, the community and nonprofit clients! The event titled “Unplug and Play” is nationally sponsored by Toys for Tots and Good360.
Information on multiple distribution dates (June and July) and locations is available at the OneSource Center website: OneSourceCenter.org/Toys The event is open to ALL children. A flyer that can be distributed to community members and nonprofit clientele is available on the website.
OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence, a regional redistribution partner for Good360, coordinated the shipments of 16,000 toys to regional nonprofits who will distribute them. CEO Christie Brown said, “The last year has been especially challenging to children nation-wide. It is an honor to partner with Toys for Tots, Good360 and regional partners to get toys into the hands of kids and encourage them to step away from technology and have some good old-fashioned play time with toys. The joy on the children’s faces when they receive the toys is incredible!”
Nonprofit partners and regional sponsors for the distribution events are: Activities Beyond the Classroom, BKD CPAs and Advisors, Brighter Days for Kids, Brighton Center, Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio, Ethicon HOLA, FC Cincinnati Foundation, Good360, Messer, Inter Parish Ministry, OneSource Center, 2021 Avondale Community Makeover (sponsored by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, P&G, the Cincinnati Reds/Reds Community Fund and the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden), Toys for Tots and the Wegman Company.
