TOCO is the Tapestry of Community Offerings. Our mission at TOCO is to empower families through green and community partnerships. Our programs elevate the quality of life for children and families who together build a strong, diverse and sustainable future.
We operate through gracious volunteers, public donations, events fundraising and the operation of the TOCO Shop. At the TOCO Shop we keep materials out of landfills by helping give them fresh lives through reselling, up-cycling, and redistributing items to organizations & individuals that can make use of them.
In 2016 we helped serve 965 families in transitional life situations through our textile pantry, bear necessities & backpack outreach program and we kept 1,186,974lbs out of landfills by since 2010.
