Another successful toy drive supported by the generous donations of Global Aviation staff

Maybe it is because the staff is surrounded daily by some of the best flying toys around, but the Global Aviation family always enthusiastically supports the annual toy drive. We would like to thank all of you who were generous with your time and donations that will make the holidays special for local Hillsboro families.

The Global Aviation toy donations this year were given to the Toy & Joy Makers organization that collaborates with the Hillsboro Fire Random Acts charity organization and Hillsboro Elks Lodge. In 2015 Toy & Joy Makers distributed over 50,000 toys to families in need.

The donated toys in Hillsboro are delivered to the Hillsboro Elks Lodge where volunteers match local requests for assistance with the collected toys. Over 800 families in the Hillsboro area had made requests for assistance this year.

“We couldn’t do this without the generous support of our Hillsboro partners and the Hillsboro community,” said Hillsboro Firefighters Toy & Joy coordinator Ryan Grimaldi. “We are thankful for the opportunity to help where we can this holiday season.”

Hillsboro Firefighters Random Acts, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, charitable organization created by dedicated firefighters and employees from the City of Hillsboro who truly believe that they can make a difference in the community.
