Volunteer for His Toy Store

HTS volunteer page header

His Toy Store is our annual Christmas outreach to help families in need. Each year, we fundraise to purchase toys and gifts that will fill pop-up stores across the city (from Brooklyn to the Bronx). Our affiliate and church partners work with us to host these pop-up stores, and volunteers are then recruited to decorate, set up, organize, and fill these stores with wrapped gifts. 

This year, there will be 13 pop-up stores across our city, all hosted on either Saturday, December 7 or Saturday, December 14. On these days, volunteers will help parents who have been invited by our affiliates to select toys for their children. For many families, His Toy Store is the only time a year when they can provide Christmas gifts.

We still need volunteers at these pop-up store locations. Please sign up!

Thank You for Helping Us Reach Beyond Our Goal!

This year, you helped us fundraise more than $95,000 to fill every His Toy Store with over 4500 toys for 1800 families in need! His Toy Store is the one time each year when parents facing financial difficulties can provide Christmas presents for their children, and we are so thankful for your ongoing support!

Ways to Pray for His Toy Store

  • Pray for the 13 pop-up stores on December 7 and 14, that each would provide a welcoming and caring environment for families to enjoy.
  • Pray for the affiliates and volunteers hosting each store, that they would show love and encourage the families who come.
  • Pray for the nearly 1800 families that will visit the stores, that they would experience the love of Jesus and be connected to a community year-round.
