The holidays are an especially challenging time for low-income families in our city, so we’re excited about the opportunity to show them Christ's generosity this month through Hope for New York’s His Toy Store.
His Toy Store is Hope for New York's Christmas toy drive for families in need. In November, people like you donate new toys, and then Hope for New York works with churches and volunteers to host 12 His Toy Stores throughout the city in December. At these stores, parents can shop for toys at no cost and are also able to connect to ministries for care and resources.
