Holiday Toy Store
You Can Help Spread Joy This Holiday Season!
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!
