K.I.D.S. Organizes Product Pledge Drive
Kids in Distressed Situations will once again arrange pledges of new merchandise from vendors exhibiting at MAGIC this week. The products will be distributed through an established network of nearly 1,000 local community social service agencies in the U.S. and abroad to help children who are suffering from life-altering challenges including poverty, homelessness, illness and disaster survival. Donation forms will be distributed to all exhibitor booths.
“In today’s economic environment, where underprivileged children and youth need our help more than ever, MAGIC offers a great opportunity for manufacturers to be able to give back and provide hope to those that need it most [and] provides an excellent platform for K.I.D.S. to secure needed merchandise donations,” said Peter Rosenthal, chairman of K.I.D.S. and president of factoring firm Rosenthal & Rosenthal.
MAGIC and K.I.D.S. have worked together for five years. To donate products, visit kidsdonations.org/make_donation/product_form.
