Constructive Playthings - U.S. Toy Company/Constructive Playthings recently received a call from Canadian Valley Technical Center saying that their on-campus daycare center was severely damaged by the latest round of tornadoes in Oklahoma. Canadian Valley needed new educational furniture, supplies, and toys sent to their campus the next day.

Constructive Playthings team members, along with other corporate partners, worked to pull together the large re-supply order and arranged for a direct shipment to the Canadian Valley Technical Center preschool. Constructive Playthings was the only educational toy and furniture supplier to meet the requested delivery timeframe. This first shipment to the damaged preschool met the most immediate needs of the preschool. Future shipments are planned next week to complete the rebuilding of the school.

“We are extremely proud of our U.S. Toy Company/Constructive Playthings team members that were able to come together to accomplish the goal of helping our friends at the Canadian Valley Technical Center rebuild their preschool,” stated Jonathan Freiden, co-CEO of U.S. Toy Company/Constructive Playthings. Furthermore, according to Freiden, “Constructive Playthings has been able to offer rapid re-supply of early childhood school furniture, toys, and supplies due to our close proximity to the disaster areas and close relationship with our logistics partners.”
