Friday, December 20th, 2019 marked the opening of Houston Children’s Charity’s 2-day Annual Toy Distribution event at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. Since 2008, the organization’s clients have been the recipients of the U.S. Marines’ Toys for Tots donations collected from official drop-off sites citywide. For nearly two decades, Houston Children’s Charity has hosted the gifting event – first partnering with the U.S. Marines’ Toys for Tots program in 2008 and then, through the generosity of the Houston First Corporation, moving into the 125,00 square foot George R. Brown Convention Center in 2010. In total, the most recent Annual Toy Distribution served 20,000 children in need by giving away an estimated 80,000 toys.
