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 18,000 Twin Cities children.

Want to Help Others?

In 2015, a total of 62,780 toys were collected or purchased using donations to the program. That’s a lot of toys – and we need your help to do it again this year! Our toy shops will serve 6,000 Twin Cities families in 2016.

You can donate a new, unwrapped toy at one of the drop off locations listed below. While everything helps, our greatest shortage each year is gifts for adolescents ages 7-14 (adolescent gift ideas). This year we are also short on gifts for ages 0-2. We accept online donations to help us fill the gaps.

Toy Drop-Off Locations

Toys are needed for newborns through children 14 years of age. Our drive in partnership with AT&T Stores has ended, but you can still drop off toys at our Northern Division Headquarters, 2445 Prior Ave. N., Roseville.

Need Help?

The Salvation Army is no longer accepting applications for our 2016 Toy Shop program, as we have met our capacity. If you missed registration, you may call United Way’s 2-1-1 hotline to see if other assistance is available where you live.

Our Twin Cities Toy Shop hotline will remain open to assist those who have already registered for our program with any questions. If you have preregistered, please call 651-746-3595. No new registrations will be accepted via the hotline.
