The First Annual First Responders Children’s Foundation Toy Express program will help spread joy to children of first responders across America during the 2020 holiday season. Starting in October, 2020 and continuing through the end of December, 2020, the First Responders Children’s Foundation Toy Express will deliver more than 100,000 toys to children of first responders as well as to children in first responder communities. This effort is made possible by the generous support of American Girl, Barbie, CSX Santa Train, G.R.O.W. (Growing Remarkable & Outstanding Women), Jakks Pacific, Mattel, Moves That Matter, Takeda, and TQL (Total Quality Logistics).
From May 14 to 17, 2020, for every Barbie doll purchased in America, Mattel donated a Barbie doll to First Responders Children’s Foundation. These 34,000 donated Barbie dolls will deploy across America this 2020 holiday season – rushing to the rescue of children everywhere!
