Last year we gave away over 1,800 toys to needy families in our community and hope to give away even more this year. Parents of the selected families will get to pick out three toys for each of their children. We ask that you donate toys that you would be excited to give your own child or grandchild on Christmas morning!
We are looking for new or gently used toys for newborns to age 18. Please follow these guidelines for donations. Gently used toys should be CLEAN and have ALL pieces/parts included. When donating toys with multiple parts, please secure them in baggies or tape them to the main toy. This is such a great help!
Items we do not need include: clothing, shoes, adult accessories (jewelry/purses/scarves), household goods, or Christmas decorations.
We do want: bikes of all sizes, children’s books (not written in or torn), riding toys, trucks/cars, blocks, art sets, kid or teen appropriate jewelry, Lego sets, dress up clothes, basketballs, volleyballs, bats/baseballs, wallets, Barbies and accessories, baby dolls, superhero toys, board games, science kits, make-up sets, teen appropriate purses, teen appropriate watches, baby equipment that is clean and in good working order, make believe toys (kitchen sets/tool sets, etc.).
Please contact Lisa Gassaway at 960-4765 or call the church office if you would like to volunteer to organize and get ready for this event or help the day of the event!
