His Toy Store Reimagined

 

For over 25 years, His Toy Store has been an annual Christmas outreach that provides toys to families in need. This year we’re continuing our pandemic version, His Toy Store Reimagined. For a third year, we are raising holiday funds for our affiliates, so they can provide a projected 15,000 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!
