Holiday Toy Shop

Holiday Toy Shop

Bring a smile to the face of a child with special needs this holiday!

We need your help filling our Annual Toy Shop with toys and gifts for the 3,000 children on our list.

Every toy is another present to make the holiday bright for a very special child!

Shop Online For Your Toy Donation This Year

We realize your co-workers may be working remotely, your businesses may not have as much traffic, and the holiday parties you collected toys at may not be feasible this year.

To make shopping and delivery as easy and safe as possible, we have created an Amazon Wishlist with lots of toys for all ages. You can collect donations from colleagues, neighbors and family to make a large purchase or donate a few toys on your own.

  • Add toys to your cart. (Don’t hesitate to buy more than one of any toy.)
  • Our shipping address will appear in your cart when you checkout.
  • Complete your purchase and let us know to expect your package.

It’s so easy. You’re just a few clicks from giving so much joy this year!

Volunteer space is limited to register now. Masks will be required and all volunteers will undergo a temperature check upon check-in.
