“I believe the best and the brightest hope for developing inclusive and creative communities comes through educating new generations on how to create and appreciate handcrafted items. PROJECT T.O.Y. (Teaching Our Youth) works to provide crafting supplies and educational materials to local libraries, schools, and youth groups. 

Growing up, my Grandma Toy taught me to get creative when it came to working around my limitations. Through her encouragement, I found confidence to make and meet my goals, develop new skills, and empower others to do the same. I feel honored to be able to pay that love forward in some small way, through PROJECT T.O.Y.”
