This Month, Donate a Toy to His Toy Store

November 18, 2013

The holidays are an especially challenging time for low-income families in our city, so we’re excited about the opportunity to show them Christ's generosity this month through Hope for New York’s His Toy Store.

His Toy Store is Hope for New York's Christmas toy drive for families in need. In November, people like you donate new toys, and then Hope for New York works with churches and volunteers to host 12 His Toy Stores throughout the city in December. At these stores, parents can shop for toys at no cost and are also able to connect to ministries for care and resources.

These parents include the working poor in low-income neighborhoods, formerly incarcerated individuals reconnecting with their families, single moms living in homeless shelters, and those still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.

For many of them, His Toy Store is the only opportunity they have to provide gifts for their children. However, this outreach isn’t just a one-time giveaway— our hope is that parents connect with a caring church community for year-round support and spiritual community.

“Events like this help my family as well as the rest of community in a positive way,” a mom at our store in Washington Heights told us last year. “This serves as a light to show that God is with you, and He's trying to make it better. It's a sense of hope for everyone.”

Our goal is to raise 5,000 donated toys by December 3.  There are lots of ways you can help:

  1. Donate a toy via our Amazon Wishlist, where you can pick out a toy and ship it straight to our warehouse.
  2. Purchase a new toy and send it to us at His Toy Store c/o World Vision, 310 Tiffany Street, Bronx, NY 10474.
  3. Give a financial gift designated to His Toy Store.
  4. Volunteer to help sort and pack gift donations.

Find our Amazon Wishlist, make a financial gift, or volunteer to help sort and pack gift donations at hfny.org/HTS.
