Priceless Gift Toy Store

The holidays are upon us and once again the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and Together We Can Make a Difference are partnering to offer the Priceless Gift Toy Store.  In order to help over 4,000 children this Christmas season, donations for gently used and clean toys are being requested now through December 15th.  In addition, personal hygiene items such as shampoo, deodorant, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, batteries of all varieties, zip-lock bags of all sizes, and cleaning wipes are requested.  If you have donations or time to volunteer to cleaning, organizing, or preparing for the opening of the Toy Store, stop by between 10 am and 3 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from now until December 15th.  Lunch will be provided for volunteers.

Please note the new location: 

 Bethany's Gym, 1000 East Porter Street, Jackson MI 49202

The Store offers parents, grandparents, and caregivers who are experiencing hardship the opportunity to "shop" for children - items are in fact, free. Organized by age range and then sectioned into items for boys, items for girls, stocking stuffers, winter wear, and much more, all waiting for families to take home and wrap.  The Priceless Gift Toy Store, now in it's 12th year carries one mission: making sure no Christmas tree goes presentless.  

If you would like to visit the Priceless Gift Toy Store, doors open on November 25th at 10 am and will run through December 15th.

To learn more, please visit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul website.
