Giftmart Toy Collection

GM4.jpg

We have a goal of collecting 3000 toys in order to serve 1100 children with the assistance of 400 volunteers from the community and the church. It’s a lofty goal, but for a church whose mission is to "love God, love others, change the World," the intrinsic rewards are worth the effort.

If you are interested in supporting this ministry, you can participate in the following ways:

  • Bring in a new, unwrapped toy valued between $18 - $20 between November 19 - December 8 (no stuffed animals please) at either Wheatland location: Naperville or Oswego.
  • Host a Toy Collection Box in your store, organization or neighborhood. We provide the box and informational postcard. We'll also pick up the box at the end of the drive.
  • Host a Christmas Party with a Purpose. Ask guests at a home or work party to donate a toy, roll of wrapping paper, batteries, or anything on our Wish List.
  • Volunteer yourself, your family, or your friends to serve at Naperville or Oswego on Dec. 17.
  • Donate new Christmas gift wrap or tape.
