toy-drive

This December, we’re partnering with Denton County Toy Store to collect toys as part of our Christmas outreach! Denton County Toy Store is a non-denominational, non-profit organization that has been serving families in our community since 1969. Each year, they provide toys for more than 1,000 kids all across Denton County.

How Can I Help?

This year, we have two ways you can help.

  1. You can participate in our toy drive right here at The Bridge
  2. Or you can also volunteer with the toy store event

Toy Drive at The Bridge Church

Bring new, unwrapped toys, books, games, puzzles or stuffed animals for children ages 0-12. We have donation boxes in each foyer for you to drop off your toys through Sunday, December 13th. If you’d like to give online toward the Toy Drive, please click here and select “Outreach – Toy Drive 2015.”

Volunteer Opportunities

Denton County Toy Store relies entirely upon volunteer help to run this event each year. There are several volunteer opportunities available if you’re interested in serving with the Toy Store. No need to sign up. There’s always plenty to do! You’re welcome to show up at any of the dates below, and a Toy Store representative will teach you what to do!  It’s that easy.

We’re so excited for this great opportunity to REACH our community and help make Christmas a little brighter for these families. Contact info@findthebridge.com if you have any questions about donations or volunteer opportunities.
