ABOUT US

Winona Area Toys for Kids is a volunteer organization that has existed over 30 years under one name or another. Its purpose has remained unchanged—to provide a toy to area children whose parents would like some help to give a toy to their child during the Holidays.

TFK serves the Winona area, including western Wisconsin at Cochrane, Fountain City, Bluff Siding, and Buffalo City; in Minnesota, Winona, Goodview, Minnesota City, Rollingstone, Rushford, Lewiston, Homer, and surrounding areas. Toys are distributed to over 350 families and about 1,000 children each year.  All donations and toys that are received stay in the Winona area.

Jim Eddy
Jim EddyPast Chair
Jim Eddy has to resign as chair of the Winona Area Toys for Kids and will no longer be able to take a very active role in the organization due to health issues. Jim’s presence will be sorely missed. He has been the chair of the committee and the driving force that resulted in the growth of Winona Area Toys for Kids. Under his leadership and his emphasis on personal contact the number of donation sites has grown from about 25 to 130. The number of children served has grown from less than 100 to about 800 each year. He has also been the primary one to contact and encourage community members to make the monetary donations that have enabled the purchase of toys from local retailers.
