This page will be updated between October and December 2021. Please bookmark and check back often.

We have plenty of ways you can serve this holiday season (in person and virtually) to support neighbors in need! Sign up to volunteer, and bring hope and renewal to our neighbors!

Want to volunteer with your church? If you're a congregant with one of our church partners, keep an eye out for what your church shares.


His Toy Store Reimagined

 

For 25 years, His Toy Store has been an annual Christmas outreach that provides toys to families in need. As we celebrate our milestone anniversary, we’re continuing our pandemic version, His Toy Store Reimagined. For a second year, we are raising holiday funds for our affiliates, so they can provide more families with basic needs (like food and groceries), in addition to toys! 

As part of His Toy Store Reimagined, our affiliates also need volunteers to bring holiday joy throughout Thanksgiving and Christmas. Find a way to volunteer today!
