2017 Report

You did it! You helped us DOUBLE last year’s donations!

Over $20,000 was collected by our road-side teams, online, at over 50 participating business locations, and at events like Breakfast with Santa and Christmas in July.

Many thousands, perhaps as many as 10,000, NEW toys were donated, purchased, and distributed.  Toys, Gift Cards, and Donations were provided to and distributed by many local organizations, including Pittsburgh Police, Children’s Hospital, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Beverly’s Birthdays, Children’s Miracle Network, and the Pittsburgh Athletic Association.

A BIG THANK YOU to all Participating Organizations and Volunteers from the Greater Pittsburgh Business Association.

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.
