What is Ryan’s Toy Roundup?
Ryan’s Toy Roundup was started in memory of Ryan Patrick Faella, a 13-year-old boy from Mountainside who had an incredible energy, an infectious smile, and a kind heart. Ryan, who passed away suddenly in the summer of 2000, loved life, sports and most of all, his family and friends. In order to honor Ryan’s life, Ryan’s Toy Roundup was founded as a major event of the Ryan Patrick Faella Foundation to channel his love through each toy donation, so that his memory lives on through a child who may experience a happier holiday.
