The Pirate Toy Fund is a nonprofit organization located on East Main Street, that supplies toys to over 70 local agencies that bring comfort and aid to thousands of children-in-need throughout the Greater Rochester region. Since 1995, the Pirate Toy Fund has collected and distributed almost 400,000 toys.

The Fund was started by children's entertainer [WWW]Gary The Happy Pirate inspired by the extraordinary life of Christie Simonetti.

The Toy Fund accepts new, unwrapped toy donations year-round at Eastview Mall, The Mall at Greece Ridge, The Marketplace Mall, and Strong National Museum of Play.

Every year during the holiday season, the Pirate Toy Fund hosts a week-long televised toy drive to collect more toy donations from the community. 1
