About Christmas Village Toy Store
The Christmas Village Toy Store provides a “hand up” for local area families who want to purchase affordable new toys for their children at Christmas. Rather than simply giving a handout of toys to at-risk families, we believe in empowering families to purchase Christmas gifts for their own children. Donated toys will be sold at deeply discounted prices. The funds generated will be reinvested back into the store, giving job opportunities to some of these same families to work in the store, while the training and experience they receive from being employed by the Christmas Store will expand their employable skills.
How does it Work?
For one weekend, Christmas Village Toy Stores in Eastern North Carolina will be open to select families to shop for Christmas gifts for their families at a drastically reduced price. Invitations to shop at area Christmas Village Toy Stores are distributed through local agencies and organizations that support families in need. This year over 300 invitations will be provided to local organizations, agencies and schools to be distributed to area families.
The Toy Store will also have a gift wrapping station, a Kidz Shoppe Room where children can make crafts for the parents, listen to a Christmas story and EARN the right to purchase gifts for their parents with Kidz Bucks. There is also a Cafe with cookies, hot chocolate and coffee.
