The Olympia Toy Run is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and Washington State charitable organization. Our mission is to bring individuals together for a very worthy purpose: the joy of a child receiving a gift during the holiday season. We collect toys and money to benefit children and families in need in our community during the Christmas season and throughout the year. We work together with agencies such as the Salvation Army Corps of Olympia through their Toy and Joy program, a program that helps to ensure hundreds of lower-income families in our community have an opportunity to have gifts for their children.
The Olympia Toy Run is administered by a coalition of members who successfully and effectively work together throughout the year with their passion for our cause, strong leadership values, and open channels of communication. The coalition meets monthly to discuss and plan events, discuss, review, and vote on proposals for artwork, merchandise orders, licenses, insurance, etc. Participation and input by our members are essential in making the Olympia Toy Run a continued success!
