Big Thanks to Chick-fil-A and the International Wrestling Cartel

Saturday, December 8th was a big day for Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes!  Chick-fil-A Miracle Mile located in Monroeville provided a FREE Chick-fil-A Sandwich coupon to anyone who came in and donated a new, unwrapped toy!  Then Santa visited the International Wrestling Cartel’s first-annual Pittsburgh Pro Wrestling Classic, where even more toys were donated.

From all our volunteers at Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes, a heartfelt THANK YOU to Chick-fil-A at Miracle Mile and to the International Wrestling Cartel!

These events benefited Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes.  Visit our 2018 Photo Gallery.

We donate toys and cash to the following charities: UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Beverly’s Birthdays, Pittsburgh Police and other local departments.

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 celebrated its 27th year as an organization in 2018.

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.
