Portland Toy Drive Christmas in July Open House & Fundraiser


Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center

The Portland Toy Drive continues its progression with over 1000+ supporting fans on our Facebook fan page. The best causes are those that help the less fortunate while supporting your local economy. That is what the Portland Toy Drive is all about – an opportunity to help children in your community while creating social and business connections to help you in your ambitions.

After a successful Portland Toy Drive Social Mixer last month we move into our next phase in building the momentum with community awareness and support. The Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center is the site of our next major event with an added goal of raising charitable funds. Whereas the social mixer was a chance for a meet & greet of supporters and business professionals this upcoming event is a opportunity to network on a grander scale with an added bonus of donating toys and monetary proceeds (tax deductible of course). We must thank a few early businesses that have donated thus far to our auction and raffle drawing (more underway):

Hotel Deluxe
Hotel Vintage Plaza
Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center
The Original Dinerant
El Gaucho
Pazzo Ristorante
Jerry Trimble Helicopters
Listed below is detailed information of our upcoming event:

The Portland Toy Drive initiative is a concerted effort among volunteers, fans, businesses & organizations to stage a successful toy drive this holiday season to help needy children. We, the Portland Toy Drive team, are promotional support advocates for the Fire Department’s Toy & Joy Makers & the Marine’s Toys For Tots. Our mission is to help Portland become the largest toy drive success in the Nation with 1000 supporting entities.
