Every year we donate to Toy and Joy Makers to help make a difference in the lives of families and in particular children. This year is no different, and the need is especially strong due to the damage caused by COVID-19, a rise in unemployment, and the Oregon wildfires.
Since SMACNA's annual Christmas Gala is cancelled due to COVID-19 we would like to challenge you, our Members and Affiliates, to donate a portion of the funds you would normally spend on sending Employees to the Gala. We also encourage you to promote this worthy cause to your employees and other people who might have an interest in donating. You can donate by sending a check to:
Toy & Joy Makers, Inc. 5916 NE Going St Portland, Oregon 97218
Or donate online with this link: Toy and Joy Makers
If you donate, we would appreciate you e-mailing SMACNA a copy of the check and /or forward us the receipt. We need to keep track of all the good work that our Members and Affiliates are doing so we can award the use of the Fire Truck and Fire Hall Tour. The deadline for the challenge is December 18, 2020
“Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good.” This year, Giving Tuesday lands on December 1st and it would be a great day to mark your calendars to open up your hearts (and your wallets) to these families and children in need.
