Portland Fire and Rescue’s Toy & Joy Makers mission for over 100 years has been to promote the spirit of helping children and their families in our community during the holiday season. This mission manifests itself by providing qualified families in need with appropriate gifts for their children. These efforts bring joy to both givers and receivers during the season and throughout the year.
- To provide leadership that encourages community Toy & Joy Makers partnerships that result in helping children and their families.
- To strive to ensure that no child should go without receiving gifts for Christmas.
- To reduce a child’s tragedy of losing their toys due to fire, flood, earthquake and other natural or man-made disasters.
- To manage the resources and provide the support necessary to accomplish our mission.
