Christmas Toy Store

St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho believes that every child should be able to celebrate Christmas! Our Program is unique because it serves children all the way up to age 18, and allows parents to choose the gift for their child. This annual program serves thousands of families in need every year – last year we helped 3,400 kids!


We need volunteers to ensure that the Christmas toy store is successful! You can help out this Christmas season and make a child’s Christmas brighter! 

We need volunteers at our two toy store locations as well as operating the phones when clients call!


We need toys and gifts! This year, the biggest need is for boys/girls ages 10-18. While this is where we need the most help, gifts for all ages of kids are welcomed. However, we have plenty of clothing and stuffed animals. Toys/Gifts need to be new and in original packaging. (No need to gift wrap) We suggest a $10 – $50 price range.
Please drop off toys at designated barrels at each of our thrift store locations.
You can also donate online and we will do the shopping for you! This is a great COVID-19 safe way to make sure every child can celebrate Christmas.
