What to Expect on Your Visit

The first step is to check-in. A volunteer will confirm your children’s ages and genders. They’ll assign you an order number to take with you to the showroom waiting area.

When your order number is called, another volunteer will walk you through the showroom where you will be able to choose two toys or gifts and a book for each eligible child. All children will receive a package of socks and an educational item. All the items in the showroom are organized by gender and age, so it is easy to find the perfect gift!

Once you have chosen your gifts, your showroom volunteer will direct you to the gift distribution waiting area. While you wait, yet another volunteer will be picking your selected items from our warehouse shelves.  When your order is ready, a volunteer will call your number, and together, you’ll double check that everything is correct. Then you’re on your way to a Merry Christmas.
