VTech, a world leader in electronic learning products for children, has been named the official “Adopt-the-Pig” sponsor of The Toy Foundation’s Toy Bank for 2021. A long-time supporter of The Toy Foundation, VTech’s sponsorship includes a $10,000 donation to The Toy Bank, which delivers joy and comfort, through play, to vulnerable children and families.
“VTech’s support means everything to us and to the countless children we impact each year,” said Elizabeth Max, senior manager of The Toy Foundation. “The funding we receive from VTech will enable us to reach more children in more communities across the nation. They have been a longtime supporter of The Toy Foundation, having donated countless toys over the years, and always show up to lend a hand at our volunteer events. Thank you, VTech, for your sponsorship and ongoing commitment to our cause!”
“We are honored to be the Adopt-the-Pig sponsor for 2021,” said Andy Keimach, president of VTech Electronics North America. “We have always supported the important work The Toy Foundation does to provide toys to children in need and hope our expanded partnership can bring even more smiles throughout the year.”
VTech has generously donated toys over the years to support The Toy Bank, and has participated in other Foundation programs, including TTF’s integral Play Your Part events held in cities nationwide, which bring brand-new toys and a fun-filled “day of play” to vulnerable children.
As TTF’s year-round signature giving program, The Toy Bank collects millions of toys from generous toy companies and distributes them to a network of carefully vetted children’s charities. Since its inception in 2003, The Toy Bank has provided more than $225 million in toys to more than 26 million children in need across the United States. Currently, TTF’s giving supports kids who are severely impacted by COVID-19, coping with serious illness, enduring temporary home placements in the foster care system, living with domestic violence, and/or dealing with natural disasters.
