Brief Background information about JTCF


In 1992, John Theissen founded JTCF, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, after John, at age 17, was hospitalized for a brain tumor at a local children’s hospital.


In 1992, John held a toy drive during the holidays to benefit children in local hospitals. During the first toy drive John collected over 800 hundred new toys in just two weeks and brought them to three different hospitals. Well that was the beginning of what has become a year round organization. Since 1992, JTCF has collected over 650,000 new toys and have donated them to sick and underprivileged children in over 185 hospitals and child-care facilities.


JTCF also donates therapeutic and recreational equipment. Donations enable us to provide special wishes and gifts. In addition, we also help families with medical expenses.
