Families in Milwaukee continue to struggle during these difficult economic times. This is especially evident during the Christmas Holiday Season. The Salvation Army provides parents with the opportunity to "shop" for toys that have been donated and collected in the community. Parents make selections based on the age and gender of their children and are able to surprise them on Christmas morning with toys. The Toy Shop is a cooperative effort between The Salvation Army and the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. The Toy Shop utilizes hundreds of volunteers to sort toys and assist parents with their shopping. Over 20,000 children receive toys through this program.
Services and Opportunities Include:
- Toy Collection
- Toy Sorting
- Toy Distribution
- Opportunities for Volunteer Service
- Pastoral Care
