Santa's Shop

Santa's Shop is a time when parents at the Houses can come into the office to select toys for their children to open on Christmas morning! Many of the families who stay with us are unable to get out to go shopping for the holidays and this program allows them to create a more familiar Christmas experience for their children.

For this event we will accept toy donations of any new, unused, and unopened toys for children ages 0-21. 

Consider making a toy donation for children of families staying in one of our two Houses and make a child smile this Christmas!
