Volunteer - Santa's Toy Shop

  • to
  • Woodland Hills Church

    1740 Van Dyke Street, Maplewood, MN (map)

    44.993947 -93.021361

  • We will send out more information closer to event
  • You are invited to a heartwarming volunteer event!

    It's time again to sign up for volunteering at the Salvation Army for the Santa's  Toy Shop Program. I have volunteered for this program for the last 20 years and I LOVE it!  

    I will be posting this event to family/friends and in my other meetup group. Because of program changes, we can only bring 30 people total. If there is a waiting list, I will try to get you in if possible.


    Wear comfortable clothing and don't bring valuables. Dinner/snacks/drinks are provided for us for free.

    The Christmas Toy Shop Program houses all of the toys that are donated by the public at different stores. This program invites parents in need to select gifts/toys for their children for the holidays. As a volunteer on this day, you can either choose to help parents select toys for their children or help "man" the tables with the toys (making sure that the tables are always filled with toys, helping  parents/volunteers find toys) or other jobs like check people in, etc.

    This is a great opportunity; normally everyone who participates loves it! Kids can volunteer if they are older than 18 years old. If you have a specific question about a child volunteering with you, please contact Jennie at [masked] (she is the Salvation Army Volunteer Coordinator).

    Thank you SO much! Would love to have you join us. It's such a great experience to "give back" to the community. You will definitely make a difference!

    I look forward to experiencing this with you! We can decide there what jobs we will have and I will send out a reminder to you before this event.

    THANK YOU for helping out!    

    (People from Out & About in St. Paul Meetup will be joining us)

Christmas Toy Shop elves (volunteers) help with checking in recipients, stocking tables with toys for shoppers, and escorting recipients through the toy shop “store”. A meal will be provided at the beginning of your shift. Volunteers need to be at least 16 years old. If you are a small group, we ask that each person in your group sign-up individually. Please call[masked] if interested.
