Mattel Partners with Comfort Cases
Comfort Cases is thrilled to announce that Mattel, a leading global toy company and owner of one of the strongest portfolios of children’s and family entertainment franchises in the world, has donated thousands of toys and games to Comfort Cases to be given to youth entering foster care. Mattel donated age-appropriate products, including 1000 plush toys and 1000 UNO decks to be included in the Comfort Cases distributed to foster children in need.
“We are so proud to support Comfort Cases in an effort to empower the next generation to explore the wonder of childhood and reach their full potential,” remarked Nancy Molenda, Executive Director of the Mattel Children’s Foundation.
Comfort Cases’ Founder Rob Scheer was delighted to announce the partnership. “We are so thankful to the team at Mattel for being so generous in this donation,” he said. “With more than 1000 children entering foster care daily, and more than 400,000 children in foster care nationwide, it’s so important to not just raise awareness, but to also provide hope and dignity to them by giving back to these children, which is exactly what our friends at Mattel are doing.”
Rob also recalled a touching anecdote; “When I told my son about this donation (particularly the UNO decks), he was so excited: `This will be such a cool icebreaker for kids to have the first night in a new home!'”
