Toy Drive

Since the beginning of the ministry, we have conducted a Toy Drive every year during Christmas time to bring joy to the underprivileged children who rarely receive gifts. It has become a signature event of the ministry that requires a full year of preparation and help from many volunteers and donors. It happens rain or shine, with or without donation, and God always provides. It is a celebration in the community. Families camp out to get in line the night before.

Each year, we distribute brand new toys to over 1,200 children who have been anticipating maybe their only gift of the year. They are able to choose from a room full of toys; and along with it, a wish comes true.

We welcome in-kind donation of toys throughout the year. This will give us to enough time to transport them across the border before Christmas without causing issues at the customs. We only request that the toys be brand-new, in packaging, and cost roughly five to ten US Dollars. You may deliver or post the toys to:
