The Toy Shop is a community outreach ministry that serves families of the Edmonds Food Bank, Washington Kids in Transition, and others in the community during the Christmas season. Those in need are invited to attend a one-day event where volunteers provide hospitality and assist in helping parents to choose gifts for their children. We are expecting to serve between 800-1,000 children at the toy shop this year to be held on December 9.
After you click the link, purchase a toy from the wishlist and it will be shipped directly to the Toy Shop.
We currently need some help with the following pre-event tasks:
Assisting with volunteer sign-ups
Assisting in after-worship toy sales
Donation pick-ups - sorting & organizing
Anyone interested in being a part of the preparations that take place before December 7, should contact Jen Rasmussen at 425-778-2119, email@example.com or Pamela Frank at 425-582-1732, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Giving Tree will reside in the church narthex starting the first week in November. The Giving Tree will have ornaments with information on gift needs for specific ages.
After-worship Toy sales – if you don’t have time or just don’t know what to get - find something at the after-worship toy sales held on Nov 26 and Dec 3 in the narthex.
New This Year! – Amazon wish list. How easy is this? Place an order and have it shipped to the church. It’s that simple.
Used items should be in “gift-giving” condition (gentle wear is okay, but please no holes, stains, broken piece, etc.)
