Third Annual “Chicagoland Toys for Tots” Toy Drive
Chicago, IL – January 10, 2011 – Risetime is happy to announce the success of our third annual Risetime toy drive benefiting Chicagoland Toys for Tots. Thanks to the generous support of all the Risetime team members, we donated just over seventy toys to this important local charity. Risetime employees made a concerted effort to purchase toys in the age groups that are traditionally underserved- infants and young teens. A wide variety of toys were given, from developmental infant toys, footballs and baseball sets, watches for teens, to board games for the whole family.
