You Can Help Spread Joy This Holiday Season!

21 Toy Store
Wednesday, December 11 - Saturday, December 14

Every December, Person-to-Person opens its Holiday Toy Store, a festive pop-up holiday shop where client families select a free toy, book and board game for their children for the holidays.

Gifts are chosen, and wrapped during Person-to-Person’s on-site Toy Store in Darien. P2P's Toy Store delighted nearly 2,000 children last holiday season, and we are anticipating even more this year.

It takes over 500 volunteers and $60,000 worth of donated toys to make this event a success each year. Thank you for helping us spread joy to local families this holiday season!

Toy donations can be shipped directly to the P2P office by shopping on our Amazon Wish List, stocked with the most coveted toys, books and board games!

Spreading joy this holiday season is just a click away!
