Serve at Youth for Christ's Toy Store in the Bronx

About this Opportunity

The Youth For Christ NYC/Hope for New York “His Toy Store” event takes place in Horizon Juvenile Center where incarcerated youth are given the opportunity to shop for Christmas gifts to send to their siblings and/or children back at home.

The Toy Store gives them the chance to feel connected to home, and like they have something to offer during a season that often feels lonely to those inside.

On Tuesday, December 5 and Wednesday, December 6th, volunteers will:

  • Help set up the chapel space with toys (organizing by age) and decorations as we wait for the residents to come and shop.
  • Help residents shop for toys for whomever they are shopping for.
  • Help the youth write notes home to their loved ones.

Process: Click "RSVP" to sign up and a Youth For Christ staff member will be in touch.
