This year for the RePlay for Kids Adapted Toy Giveaway, over 1500 adapted toys were given to 41 agencies in Northeast Ohio who provide services to children with disabilities. We also handed out the first Jeanne Teeter Memorial Impact Award.  Thank you to volunteers from Tremco and from the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities for helping set up and coordinate this event. We'd also like to thank Heinen's helping with the catering. Here are a few photos from the event, courtesy of Heidi Mazanec from Noah Blue Photography:

The toys that are adapted at our toy adaptation workshops are given away to agencies at our adapted toy giveaway event in December of each year. Representatives from the agencies we work with are invited to select a number of adapted toys that are appropriate for the children they serve. And, of course, the adapted toys are given to the agencies for free.

The first Jeanne Teeter Memorial Impact Award was presented to Heidi Cressman from the University of Akron.  Heidi is the Director of the Women in Engineering program at the University of Akron.   In 2010, she  came to one of the RePlay for Kids repair workshops at University of Akron, and became very interested in bringing it to her students.  They have since held 32 toy workshops at the University of Akron, which has not only greatly expanded our repair capabilities, but helped demonstrate the educational aspects of doing the toy workshops.  That has led to our offering high school toy workshops to teach fun aspects of STEM concepts.  The other spinoff from these workshops was that one of Heidi’s former students went to Ohio State University for grad school and invited us to do a workshop there.  We did a couple workshops there that were well received, and they ended up starting their own toy adapting program, which has now become part of their freshman engineering lab course.  And they have received a grant to help spread this to other universities.

RePlay for Kids received several grants in the second half of 2016. Thank you to the following foundations and granting organizations:
