Santa Shop Information
Most of the families approved for holiday assistance this year will be served in our Santa Shop. With the help of volunteer personal shoppers, parents of children 1-18 years of age “shop” at no charge in our Santa Shop. We believe our Santa Shop empowers parents and strengthens the family unit as a whole, by allowing parents to be involved in the selection of Christmas toys and gifts for their children. It is a personal and joyful opportunity for parents to make decisions that provide for their children.
We anticipate over 2,000 children will be supported by Santa Shop this year. Your help is needed to bring the magic of Christmas and the holiday season to children of all ages.

If you are unable to drop off your donations at our Holiday Distribution Site, drop off your donations at any of our community supporter locations, during regular business hours.
Donating to our Santa Shop is a great way for young children, Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops, classrooms and Sunday School classes to get involved. Through toy drives, toy donation box collection sites and “bring-a-gift” parties they can help children their age have a joyful Christmas. Toys should be new and unwrapped. Merchant gift cards in increments of $25 are needed for pre-teens and teens.
Donations cannot be accepted at our Thrift Store donation area on Elkins Road.
