Edmonds Toy Shop asking for gift cards, cash donations
Last updated 10/31/2020 at 8:14am
The Edmonds Toy Shop, operated through Edmonds United Methodist Church, is asking for the public help with donations so it can help local families in need with Christmas gifts for their children.
More than 300 families and an average of 1,000 kids benefit from the Edmonds Toy Shop every year. The Toy Shop serves parents who receive services through the Edmonds Food Bank and/or Washington Kids in Transition, which serves homeless families in the Edmonds School District.
Due to COVID-19, there will not be an in-person shopping event this year. There will be online registration only through Nov. 17. Recipients must be registered, verified families of the Edmonds Food Bank or referred to Washington Kids in Transition through their school advocate.
You can buy items and drop them off or make an online donation.
