Hasbro Volunteers Get 35,000 Toys Ready for Needy RI Kids

Real Santa work: Stephen Silva, senior vice-president of Global Logistics for Hasbro, pitches in

There's Santa, and then there's Rhode Island volunteerism.

And nowhere was it more evident than on Wednesday, when 50 employee volunteers at Hasbro, Inc., got their serious elf on and sorted through more than 35,000 toys and games that the RI-based toy giant will distribute to children in need throughout the state.

The Gift of Play

The children who will benefit from Hasbro's The Gift of Play program are involved with or receive assistance from the Rhode Island Department of Human Services or the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth & Families.

Last year, toys and games valued at $15.5 million were distributed. The program has been ongoing for nearly three decades, and nationally, Hasbro donates more than 400,000 toys every year. Hasbro employees are given four hours of paid time off each month to volunteer with child-focused programs and organizations.
