Portland, OR, November 17, 2021 – Deck the halls with abundance of toys this holiday season by participating in Ripped City Gardens’ Fourth Annual Giveback Toy Drive. The Portland cannabis company is challenging it’s community members to spread holiday cheer by giving back to those who are less fortunate in the area. From now through December 15, community members can drop off unwrapped toys at partnering locations (like TOKYO STARFISH).

“It’s a challenging time for many families in our community. We recognize the struggle, and our team is dedicated to giving back to the kids of Portland and surrounding areas who are widely affected,” said Ripped City Gardens owner Stacy. “As a leader, it’s my responsibility to provide the resources and outlet while influencing others in our industry to do the same.”

Last year the event resulted in a record number of box collection locations and the donation of thousands of dollar’s worth of toys to Portland children in need. This year RCG has partnered with Iconic, Indulge Distribution, Legends Pre-Rolls and TOKYO STAFISH in Salem to encourage even more participants to donate toys. Through this partnership, community members who participate in the toy drive have a chance to win a Nintendo Switch. To enter, participants must post a photo of their toy drive donation on Instagram, using the hashtag #rippedcitygiveback and tagging @therippedcity. 

“The holiday season is a time of giving; we are calling on our fellow (Oregonians) to rise to the challenge of spreading the most joy throughout our communities.” […]

Before purchasing a toy to donate, we suggest selecting a toy that will foster development and growth, such as books, board games, puzzles, sports equipment, science kits, building or lego sets, arts and crafts sets, etc. All children receiving the gifts are also in need of clothing items. Other factors to consider are age appropriateness and appeal to diversity.
