Christmas Toy Store

Parents want to provide their children with presents under the tree to open on Christmas, but for families in need that may not be possible.

FROM’s Christmas Toy Store gives parents an opportunity to shop for toys and other gift items for their children and teens.

When you donate to FROM your donation helps our neighbors address financial issues, food insecurity, and more during this pandemic. You help us provide HOPE to our neighbors in need.
