Toy Rescue Mission holds to a high standard. Our volunteers work diligently to ensure that the toys we distribute are clean and safe. However, TRM cannot guarantee the toys that it distributes. Please take some time to review our Release of Liability form. For the latest recall information, please visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

TRM Bulletin Board
Do you remember your childhood excitement of opening gifts on your birthday and holidays?
The business of Toy Rescue Mission is ensuring that the needy children of Pierce County have those joyful experiences as well, by refurbishing and distributing gently-used toys, games, dolls, books, etc. In 2008, over 25,000 toys went to new homes, staying out of landfills and bringing smiles to young faces. Volunteers assist by holding toy drives, refurbishing toys, assisting with special events such as festivals, and helping with Easter basket and Christmas gift preparation and distribution. Adults, teens and families are all welcome to join in this meaningful and enjoyable endeavor!
Toy Rescue Mission is open for birthdays January through November. We ask all parents of children with a December birthday to please come during the month of November. If your child has a birthday in January, please contact us AFTER December 26 to arrange a visit for your gifts. Due to the high volume of clients served in December, it is nearly impossible to serve birthdays while completing holiday distribution.
Here are three of our recent birthday girls:
"Teamwork is the seed that allows ordinary people to produce extra-ordinary results!"
"Iím bored! What can I do?" HURRY OVER TO TOY RESCUE MISSION (TRM)! Weíll give you something to do!
Come and have fun while re-gifting new life into previously-loved toys! "Why would I want to do that?" you ask.
Why? Because, TRM brings so much joy and delight to needy children and seniors (with Alzheimerís and dementia) through age-and-gender-appropriate Easter Baskets, and "second-time-around" Christmas and Birthday gifts.
Why? Because, itís just plain FUN and REWARDING! Here we find truth in the adage
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
But, TRM is about more than just volunteering oneís time. Itís about EXERCISE!
"There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up!"
Itís about RECYCLING! Literally TONS of gently-used toys have a chance to be loved again instead of winding up in our local land-fills!
Itís about having a chance to be part of the PLANNING & STAGING of EXCITING EVENTS!
Easter, Christmas, and summer fairs to mention a few.
"But, I have no time!" To that we say:
"He who does not get FUN and ENJOYMENT out of every day needs to reorganize his life!" And, where can you go to have more fun, than to Toy Rescue Mission?
Do you need a TAX-DEDUCTION? TRM wants to partner with you so that we can WORK TOGETHER to make a difference in the lives of those less-fortunate in our community!
