2018 Toys for Tikes


About Us

about us

2018 is Shaping up to be Our Best Year Ever!

As we enter the 4th Quarter of the Year, we’ve already had a tremendously successful Golf Outing and we’ve participated in the Butler Oktoberfest.  Tens of thousands of dollars and many uncounted thousands of new toys are already in the bank, and we’re just getting started.  Ahead lie our main toy drive and collections season, Breakfast with Santa, and our member collections along Route 22 during the holiday season.

Route 22 Collection Dates Announced

This year volunteers from the Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection will be on hand to collect cash and toy donations along Route 22 on the following two weekends:

  • November 24th and 25th
  • December 1st and 2nd

We are proud and excited to announce that we raised yet another record amount of funds this year to go
towards Toys For Pittsburgh Tikes. After all expenses were paid, we cleared over $14,000 from this year’s
event to go towards gifts for kids in need this holiday season.

132 Golfers and nearly a dozen sponsors helped benefit Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh (UPMC), Beverly’s Birthdays, and Big Brothers & Big Sisters, as well as for the charitable efforts of The Pittsburgh Police.

Welcome to Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes

For children of all ages, very few feelings match the excitement of receiving presents at Christmas time.

Unfortunately, there are children who won’t receive gifts this Christmas. Victims of unfair circumstances, these kids absolutely deserve the same joy as their more fortunate peers.

You may not realize it, but many of these children live within your very own community.

Thanks to Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection and its small business members, hundreds of less fortunate local children receive gifts each holiday season through the “Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes” program.

Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes works in cooperation with over 40 Pittsburgh area Police Departments in distributing gifts in time for Christmas.

Who are We?

“Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes” was created by the Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection, a networking group consisting of more than 50 local businesses who exchange referrals and work together to help improve the local Pittsburgh-area communities in which they do business. The GPBC holds its weekly meetings every Wednesday morning at Jaden’s Catering in Monroeville, and has recently celebrated its 25th year as an organization in 2016.

Each year since its inception, GPBC has raised more money and toys than the year prior, and we hope to keep up that trend for 2017.

Participating businesses with offices or showrooms have been given “toy boxes” in which to collect toys from employees, customers, and community members willing to make donations of donations of new, unwrapped toys. All the “toy boxes” will then be collected and organized for distribution by participating organizations.
