  • About

    The purpose of Turnaround Toys is to provide toys to the economically disadvantaged children of Charlotte, Monroe, and surrounding areas of North and South Carolina. Turnaround Toys is a concept that is funded by the community and allows the community to be regularly involved. Families, individuals, groups and corporate sponsors donate new or gently used toys to Turnaround Toys, we then, distribute free of charge, everything that has been collected to the most poverty stricken and needy children of Charlotte. This distribution will include institutions such as shelters, churches, as well as government housing complexes.

    The plan is to eventually expand our distribution areas to others states, and then to developing countries. Turnaround Toys is a simple concept that requires no financial obligation in order to participate. To give a toy could mean you are giving a child the ability to dream and use their imagination which could lead to them becoming a Pastor, Teacher or President.

    It is a travesty for children to not have the ability to change their position in life, but when given love through being presented a toy, it could possibly change their destiny. Toys provide a tangible reminder that someone loves and cares for them. Memories of receiving toys as a child could foster and encourage a principle of giving which will manifest itself as that person becomes an adult.
