The Christmas Toy Store transforms our gymnasium into a holiday wonderland filled with new toys. Families whose children attend Project Hope Summer Camp or our Childcare Programs are invited to come to the toy store to select a Christmas present for each of their children ages birth through 12. The event is then open to the public after UNC clients are served. The Christmas Toy Store is generally held in mid-December of every year.
Toys used in the Christmas Toy Store come to UNC through donations by area residents, businesses and organizations such as Toys for Tots. UNC staff and board members worked to distribute over 2,500 toys to close to 400 families in need this past holiday season.
