Out for a Day
Toys of Hope’s unique program, “Out for a Day,” provides a day of fun and recreation for children and their families. Some of the places and events that families have been treated to include: baseball games at Citi Field and Yankee Stadium; Off-Broadway shows; the circus at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum; local museums and historical sites; the Bronx Zoo; comedy shows; arcades; the Long Island Game Farm; aquariums; college sporting events; and a trip to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
The cost of a day at a ballpark or movie theatre can be prohibitively expensive for a family that is struggling to pay their monthly bills. This program provides the whole family a memorable experience that they can treasure. The parents and their children have a chance to enjoy being together without the stress of having to use money from their household expenses.
Toys of Hope pays for admission tickets, snacks and souvenirs.
Toys of Hope has treated families as small as three, and groups of up to fifty children and adults, to the “Out for a Day” program.
