Saturday, December 9
Christmas Toy Shop
Leader: Kim Hollon |
Time: 9am – Noon
Offering Hope and Love
This holiday season as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we look to be a beacon of hope and love to local families. For many, this festive season of giving and celebrating is also a time of financial stress. To help alleviate this strain, Faith Community will offer a Christmas Toy Shop for local families. Designed to give parents the opportunity to provide Christmas for their family, the Christmas Toy Shop allows parents to select and purchase a $30 - $40-valued gift for each of their children at a greatly reduced price of $5.
Gifts with Dignity
By offering the gifts at a reduced price, we are giving parents the dignity to purchase and select the gifts for their children. This event began in response to parents watching their children receive good-intentioned gifts selected by strangers that the parents wished they were able to purchase. Thus, dignity is restored to them as they are able to purchase the gifts for their children.
This Christmas Toy Shop is only made possible through your generous donations. We are hoping to help 350 families with gifts this year!
NOTE: If you are a Food Pantry family who is interested in participating in the Christmas Toy Shop, please visit our Seasonal Support page.
How can I help?
- Shop from Home - You can click on our Amazon Wish List, or Target Registry, make your selections, and the toys will be delivered directly to the church.
- Shop Locally - You can also purchase toys at your favorite local store. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of the most requested toys … have fun shopping!
- Purchase Gift Cards - You can purchase and mail (or drop off) gift cards to the church and we will do the shopping. Please be sure to include “Kim Hollon” on the envelope, and our elves will take care of the rest.
All toys, gift cards, and gift wrap must be delivered or dropped off at the church by Sunday, November 26. Please stop by M-Th between 9 am - 4 pm and leave your items in the church office.
Note: If you would like to make special arrangements for drop-off, contact Kim at .
How will it work for the families?
We will fill the Christmas Toy Shop with age-appropriate, unwrapped $40-valued gifts, with the target age range of 2 to 14. On the day of the event, Saturday, December 9, registered parents will arrive to shop during their designated time slot. The cost to the parents is $5 per gift with a maximum of $15 per family.
We are looking forward to helping local families provide a special Christmas for their children. Thank you Faith Community for your generosity this holiday season!
