Edmonds Toy Shop

The Edmonds Toy Shop is a community outreach program that provides Christmas gifts to Edmonds Food Bank families with children ages newborn through 17. Families must be fully verified with the Edmonds Food Bank to qualify. We expect to serve more than 800 children and we need volunteers to prepare for the 2022 Edmonds Toy Shop distribution.

Here’s what you need to know if you’d like to volunteer or make a donation.

VOLUNTEER
Throughout 2022 we will prepare for our Toy Shop in December. If you would like to be involved in the planning process, please email us and provide contact information. Beginning in the fall, we’ll be sorting donations and building gift bags and gift card packages for children ages 18 and under. To keep our community safe, all volunteers are still wearing a mask. Vaccination is highly recommended.

DONATE
The most needed items for 2022 are gift cards and cash donations. We will begin collecting toys for those 12 and under this fall. The most popular gift cards are Amazon, Walmart, Target, Fred Meyer/QFC, Costco, ideally in amounts of $25 or $50

Cash Donations
There are several options for making a cash donation. Be sure your cash donation is clearly marked “for Edmonds Toy Shop.” You can donate:

REGISTRATION FOR CUSTOMERS
This year, all Edmonds Food Bank customers who are registered and fully verified from July 1, 2022, to November 1, 2022, are automatically registered for Edmonds Toy Shop.

There is not a separate registration process for customers to complete. All customers will receive confirmation of family status no later than November 15.

GIFT DISTRIBUTION
We are planning to do in-person shopping in 2022. For those households with all children between 10-18, gift cards will be available with food orders or through a drive-up option.
