Beginning November 20, we will be accepting new, unwrapped toys to be donated to the Hope for the Inner City Christmas Store. Hope for the Inner City resells these gifts at a reduced rate, allowing parents to shop for their children’s Christmas gifts.
Christmas Store Donations
Some things to consider:
• Please consider purchasing current/on trend toy items
• Please remember to shop for a variety of ages (birth-18 years)
• Bikes are popular items and sold frequently
• Please remember to purchase racially/ethnically diverse dolls and action figures
• Please do not purchase toy guns or toys representing violence
Christmas Store Volunteering
Hope for the Inner City’s Christmas Store resells toys at a reduced cost, allowing parents involved in the Hope for the Inner City community to purchase toys for their children. Volunteers are needed to assist with set up, assist shoppers, prepare and serve light refreshments, and wrap gifts. Anyone interested in volunteering must call Stephanie Young in the missions office. Mature teens are welcome, with a one-to-one ratio of parents to teens. Please keep in mind that we are seeking to serve those in the Hope for the Inner City community, not ourselves.
All donations need to be dropped off in the parlor by Sunday, December 11.
