Mission Statement


To refurbish and recycle gently-used toys for disadvantaged children and seniors in care facilities, while providing meaningful volunteer opportunities for the young-at-heart.

Description


Toys?though not a basic life need (i.e. food, shelter, clothing) are the TOOLS that children need to carry out their all-important ?task? of playing. The act of playing is as important to a child?s emotional and mental development and well-being as food and shelter are to their physical well-being. Toy Rescue Mission (TRM) is an all-volunteer run, grass-roots organization. It was organized in 1991 with the purpose of providing toys to children who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances, either due to family hardship or an immediate disaster. TRM programs center upon recycling used but still useable toys (and people!). Its volunteers are dedicated to its Mission!
