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.
All of the companies below have given above and beyond in donations to Toy Rescue Mission over the past 3 months. Take a moment to click on their logo be taken to their local store webpage, and see what they have to offer. Help support thos that support TRM!!
Toy Rescue Mission will temporarily suspend acceptance of most gently used donations for the next 60 days.
This will allow our volunteers to process the overflowing amount of donations we have on site. We apologize for this but in order to have working space we must inventory and figure out what we have. We also need to repair what has already been donated. The support we received this year even after Christmas was just amazing. This is why I am making this important short term decision.
We can still accept the following:
∑ Easter Baskets
∑ Easter Candy
∑ Chocolate Bunnies
∑ Trash Bags (30 gal heavy-duty for the shoppers. Need about 2500 and prefer black)
∑ Board Games
∑ Senior Items such as toiletries, lap blankets and walker bags
∑ Teen girl hair appliances and personal care
∑ Teen Boy personal care
∑ Small electronic items such as handheld games / MP3 players
∑ Financial donations to cover overhead such as rent and utilities

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!
"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!
