Norristown, December 9th, 2016: Montgomery County OIC in partnership with Toys for Tots will host a public day for families in need living in Montgomery County. Families who are finding this holiday season tough to purchase toys for their children may stop by for free toys on Friday, December 16th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Parents will be required to fill out a Toys for Tots application and a Montgomery County address to receive toys for their children. We encourage families of younger children (infant to 10 years old) as we only have toys remaining for those ages.
Last year, Montgomery County OIC served 350 families throughout Norristown, Methacton, and Colonial School Districts as well as many families throughout the county. OIC has been a Toys for Tots distribution location for over ten years and is one of the largest distribution centers in Norristown.
Montgomery County Opportunities Industrialization Center (Montco OIC) has proudly served the community since 1965. The late Rev. Leon H. Sullivan founded OIC of America in 1964. Fed up with workplace inequality, he established the first OIC in Philadelphia as a job training facility with the philosophy of “We help others help themselves.” Montco OIC was the 2nd of 44 affiliated nationwide that adopted his philosophy, and the OIC movement has been strong ever since. Today, we hold a variety of free programs focused on helping others become more competitive in today’s workforce. To date, Montco OIC has served 60,000 underworked and underprivileged adults in the area.
