If you did not believe in Christmas Miracles….. this year was a year to make you a believer! Back in October at our initial meeting, you all heard/felt the nervousness and concern in the sound of my voice about the unknown with toys and revenue, the lack of sponsorship, and certainly expecting the high demands for toys from our charities during the pandemic.
Well, as I am sitting here in my office reviewing the highlights and looking at the number of communities that WE helped out in 2020, I realized what a great organization we have built together in the past 7 years.
SO, for not being able to put toy collection boxes anywhere, not being able to place cash donation boxes at any location, not being able to do any social contact in order to keep all of our volunteers safe, and finally – not being able to do our normal routine to run our organization, I think we did extremely WELL in 2020.
THANK YOU ALL for your support year after year. I know none of us are ever looking for a pat on the back, but I sincerely want to express my appreciation to every one of you for always being there on a moment’s notice and fulfilling my requests always last minute due to our overwhelming demands from all of our charities.
I always say we have an army of TFPT behind us; we honestly DO. You ALL made it happened in your own way and delivered when I thought this year was going to be a huge challenge. I am extremely proud to say WE HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE in many families’ lives, and most importantly for all of the local children in undeniably the most challenging year – 2020. We are truly the BIGGEST distributor of toys in 2020 in our great city, and that is something you should be very proud of.
For that…. I THANK YOU. I appreciate you, and I am honored to have you as part of our team. We are untouchable and certainly unbeatable.
We are truly blessed that we can do this for our community. I wish you all the BEST 2021 can offer, along with much happiness and health for you and your families.
Whatever you can afford helps us buy toys for kids who otherwise wouldn’t have them during the holidays. Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes is a 501 C3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers, so you know your donation has maximum impact for the kids!
