Every December, Person-to-Person hosts a pop-up Toy Store, where clients “shop” for their children’s holiday presents. Families select a toy and a book for each child, plus a board game for the entire family to enjoy. While the parents shop, children are entertained.
Volunteer "elves" accompany each shopper and wrap each present in festive holiday paper.
All items are donated by individuals, businesses and organizations and are provided free to the clients.
In 2015, more than 2,100 children received toys and books.
Person-to-Person is a community-supported agency that provides emergency assistance for basic needs and support for individuals and families as they move towards stability.
