All children should experience the joy of laughter, the wonder of surprise and the excitement of receiving special gifts, especially at Christmas time, for their birthdays and other special events in their life.

Unfortunately, there are so many children in the Pittsburgh area who won’t receive gifts at Christmas, for so many different reasons. In situations like these, especially when children are affected, it calls to our hearts to reach out and help, and that’s the mission of Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes.

It started with the simple and caring act of kindness with the Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection, a 60-member networking group.  They collected toys and donations for children on two consecutive weekends before Christmas for many years. But their commitment to help children became bigger, much bigger and as a result of their compassionate efforts, they established Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes, a 501(c)(3) organization, to continue their mission. 

Since it began in 2014, Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes, an all-volunteer organization, has more than doubled their goals year after year exceeding their expectations.

And, 2018 was the best year ever!  With over $50,000 donated, Pittsburgh Toys for Tikes was able to provide over 15,000 toys and needed cash to more than 14 charities in the Pittsburgh area.

To continue their mission, Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes expanded their efforts and enlisted the help of more than 50 Pittsburgh-Area Businesses who generously placed “toy boxes” in their lobbies and showrooms so that employees, customers and community members can make toy donations.

Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes is “reaching outside the Christmas Toy Box” to extend their support all year round… help children celebrate those special occasions and events or extending a helping hand to the family of a sick child.

Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes donates to many charities such as UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Beverly’s Birthdays, several Pittsburgh area police departments, Pittsburgh Police Athletic League, Tree of Hope and other local churches and municipalities.

Our call to action is simply this, through your generous donations, we can continue to support the needs of Pittsburgh children who are less fortunate.
