How To Get Involved

Christmas Volunteer Information

Christmas Client Requirements

We are nearly 100% volunteer run so we rely upon our volunteers to perform all the necessary tasks. There is a variety of tasks that would suit almost everyone’s talents and interest including toy washing, electronic repairs, knitting doll blankets, data entry, supervision of volunteer groups and event organization.

Twice a year we have monumental programs that require several volunteers to accomplish the tasks required. For the Easter holiday, we typically fill over 1000 baskets with toys, books and candy. Then at Christmas time our annual distribution involves the cleaning and sorting of toys and the organization of distributing the hundreds of Christmas gifts. We need volunteers year-round but especially during these two events.

Please consider offering your skills to sustain our mission. Our volunteers get great satisfaction in knowing they help bring joy to children with gifts from our store. Every child needs toys to enhance their development and spark their imagination.

Call us today at (253) 460-6711 if you would like to volunteer.
