Christmas Toy Store 2018 has concluded. Over 2,000 Children were able to celebrate Christmas thanks to this program. Check back next fall for 2019 information!

Christmas Toy StoreSt. Vincent de Paul believes every child should be able to celebrate Christmas. For the past 7 years St. Vincent de Paul has organized a no-cost Christmas toy store for families in need in Southwestern Idaho.

Any family with children up through 18 years of age can qualify. Call the helpline to request a voucher to receive the toys or gifts. Requests can be made starting November 1st.

Parents with vouchers can pick up the toy or gift at the toy store Monday through Saturday 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM from Monday November 26th through Saturday the 22nd of December.

Alongside the toy or gift, two stocking stuffers will be provided. Additionally, while supplies last, there may be stockings, artificial trees, and tree decorations available.

Over the years, the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Toy Store has provided thousands of toys and gifts to families in need. In 2017, 1380 children were helped!

The Idaho Department of Correction hosted a resource fair this week, aiming to foster safer communities by giving newly released offenders the resources they need to stay out of crime. 6 On Your Side's Madeline White introduces us to one ex-offender who plans to do just that.

A small part of what we do is share what we have learned here in Southwest Idaho with a larger audience. This way, other St. Vincent de Paul organizations around the country can benefit from the lessons we have learned and we can also take home their ideas. This enables us to give more people in the community an even better hand up!
