Annual Christmas Toy Store

Every Parent Deserves to Shop with Dignity 

The holiday season can be a stressful time for many low-income families. Shopping for presents seems to be an insurmountable task, even for those who can afford it. To alleviate this pressure and simplify the gift search, Mission Waco has stepped up to partner with parents in providing Christmas presents to their children at an affordable cost.

Operating the first weekend of December, our volunteer-run Christmas Toy Store gives parents the opportunity to purchase brand new toys and gifts at an 80% discount off the retail price. Each year, the Toy Store serves over 500 parents in Waco, which amounts to over 2,000 children! Parents select high quality, affordable gifts for their children, which are expertly wrapped by our jolly volunteers.


Toy Drive Donations

We invite you to consider donating new toys for us to sell the toys at an affordable rate for families at the Christmas Toy Store! We always need volunteers to pull off such an event, but where we’re really in need is for individuals and Church congregations to collect new toys to bless families in our communities.

Many families love spending time at Target or Walmart picking out toys to purchase and donate, but for those who cannot, we have created an Amazon Smile Wish List. If you use the Amazon Smile Wish List, please have the donations delivered to your home. We ask that churches who collect toys and have them delivered to Central Presbyterian on November 26th. For individuals who would like to donate, please contact us first when ready to deliver your donations to coordinate a convenient day & time to deliver to our store site. Delivery deadline: Monday November 21st. If you prefer to give a financial donation, please donate on our website, and in the comment, section indicate "Christmas Toy Store."

If you have any questions about collection or delivery, please feel free to reach out to Joyce Brammer ([email protected]). For flyers & promos to share and to place in your church bulletins, please Email Bailie Rouse
