Our volunteers run the entire store, from decorating the site, setting up toys, helping parents pick out toys, gift-wrapping and more!
Creativity From Our Volunteers
Last year, our church partners donated over 3,000 new toys to make His Toy Store a possibility!
Why We Love This Affiliate
His Toy Store empowers parents of families in deep need to Christmas shop for their children at no cost!
His Toy Store is the way my family marks the Christmas season. I or the other families who participate may not have the money or have very little economic resources, but God is big and He does wonderful things through his people everyday.
Shopper at His Toy Store
I had always thought of Christian community as the act of sharing life together—until volunteering together reminded us that the primary purpose of community is not for our own fulfillment, but to be outward facing and make the city more whole by pointing to Christ.
Seanette has shopped at His Toy Store for the kids in her house ever since it first came to the South Bronx in partnership with A House on Beekman. She works at AHOB’s After-School Program, so also volunteers at His Toy Store each year. Her favorite part? The togetherness.
Adrienne Heller is a veteran His Toy Store volunteer—so we asked her to share with us what she's learned from serving, why she keeps coming back, and how she's seen God moving in and through this annual Christmas outreach to our neighbors in need across the city.
