One Toy Can Make All The Difference

Last year you made it possible for us to donate 11,502 toys to kids and over 1,000 families in the Twin Cities area. This year, help us do even more!

There are several ways to help. You can drop off a toy, a gift card, give online, or even text to give. Text “sharechristmas” and your gift amount to 28950. (ex: sharechristmas50) Any donated funds will be used to purchase gifts for families. 

Help out at one of our eight Shopping With Dignity distribution locations. Sign up here for details. 

Registration for assistance has reached capacity.

The number of families signed up to receive toy donations is now full. We will not be accepting any more applications for this season.
