U.S. Toy Company Recognized by Midwest Foster Care & Adoption Association
August 24th, 2012 – Grandview, MO – On Saturday, August 4th, 2012, U.S. Toy Company was recognized as Outstanding Community Partner at the annual Forever Families Gala hosted by the Midwest Foster Care & Adoption Association (MFCAA) based in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Sandy Krigel, Board Member of MFCAA, presented the award to U.S Toy Company Co-CEOs Jonathan and Seth Freiden (photo below).
In 2006, U.S. Toy Company and MFCAA formed a relationship that has grown throughout the years. Just as many organizations saw their funding cut, so did MFCAA. U.S. Toy Company and their sister brand CP Toys have stepped up to the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children by donating toys that provide a little joy and normalcy during the holiday season for children in foster care.
Danielle Schweiger, Development Director for MFCAA said, “Each year MFCAA eagerly anticipates the arrival of pallets of toys that we will distribute tour families. Not only does U.S. Toy Company make a huge difference in our abilities to serve nearly 850 children per year, they are creating a happy holiday for foster and adoptive children. We truly couldn’t continue to do this work without U.S. Toy Company and the generosity of the entire company.”
U.S. Toy Company is honored to receive this award and recognition from MFCAA, but knowing that we can make a difference in a child’s life is why we do what we do. It is the core principle of our company to make sure that every child has an opportunity to learn, be creativity and of course….have fun.
