About His Toy Store
For over 25 years, His Toy Store has been an annual Christmas outreach that provides toys to families in deep need. This year, we're going back to our pre-pandemic focus of raising holiday funds for on-site toy stores, as well as for other holiday grants this season.
Our goal is to fundraise $150,000 during November to make His Toy Store possible! The full giving goal will support our affiliates in creating Christmas programs that will serve 7500 children!
