Table full of toys at Toy Shop

Toy Shop

The Twin Cities Salvation Army is one of the largest providers of toys to children who may not otherwise receive Christmas gifts. This year, our Toy Shop program will bring joy to 23,000 Twin Cities children.

Want to Help Others?

You can donate a new, unwrapped toy at one of the drop off locations listed below. Toys are needed for newborns through children 14 years of age. While everything helps, our greatest shortage each year is gifts for adolescents ages 10-14 (adolescent gift ideas). We accept online donations to help us fill the gaps.

For 2017, we are still very short on volunteers to help make the toy distribution possible. Learn more about volunteering at Toy Shop.

In 2016, 18,000 children were served through the Toy Shop program. We need your help to serve even more children this year!

Toy Drop-Off Locations

Toys can be dropped off at any Salvation Army Worship & Service Center or our Northern Division Headquarters, 2445 Prior Ave. N., Roseville, Minn.
