Gift cards and cash donations needed for 2020 Edmonds Toy Shop


The Edmonds Toy Shop is moving into high gear collecting donations to help local families in need this holiday season.

The Edmonds Toy Shop is operated through Edmonds United Methodist Church, partnered with Edmonds Food Bank, and helps local families in need with Christmas gifts for their children. More than 300 families and an average of 1,000 kids benefit from the Edmonds Toy Shop every year. The Toy Shop serves parents who receive services through the Edmonds Food Bank and/or Washington Kids in Transition, which serves homeless families in the Edmonds School District.
