Steinford Toy Foundation

During the Great Depression, a Northern KY couple, Rose and George Steinford, witnessed many needy children who were not experiencing the joys of Christmas. Rose and George assumed the roles of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus by purchasing, repairing, and distributing used toys to these children. It was not long before the community became involved in their mission.
 
After Rose passed away in 1973 several Covington-Kenton County Jaycees, who had been involved in the Christmas project as volunteers, helped George carry on the tradition. The "Rose and George Steinford Foundation" was developed. In 1980 George passed away, but the foundation, now known as "The Steinford Toy Foundation" has continued to provide Christmas joy to needy families throughout Northern Kentucky.
 
Toys are purchased through donations from the Foundation's fundraising activities as well as toy donations from area businesses who help coordinate toy drives each year.
