"We like to say that with all these toys coming to Harrisburg for inspection, we have our own little Santa's workshop here," Secretary Manderino said. "The Holiday Wish program offers L&I a unique opportunity to provide children with the toys that pass inspection, giving the toys a good home and bringing joy and warmth to kids across Pennsylvania this holiday season."
The Holiday Wish program was started in 1989 by a small group of employees from the Department of Human Services (DHS), formerly known as the Department of Public Welfare. Over the years, it has grown to include hundreds of employees in multiple state agencies.
The Bureau of Occupational and Industrial Safety administers and enforces safety standards related to a variety of products including, but not limited to: boilers, building construction (Uniform Construction Code), elevators, flammable and combustible liquids, and bedding and upholstery, in addition to stuffed toys.
