We know that Christmas can be expensive. Our goal at The Christmas Store is to create a unique opportunity where parents can purchase brand new gifts for their kids at a price they can afford which leaves the parents a sense of dignity and joy. 

All proceeds from the event are donated to organizations that support youth in southwest baltimore, so by shopping, not only do parents provide for their kids, but also for numerous kids in their community!



December 8 + 15th  from 1-4 pm

at UMB's Community Engagement Center

You can help by:

1.  Donate new toys

Our goal is to have at least 1,500 toys to sell in the store this year.  We are accepting donations of new toys or financial contributions to help us in purchasing new toys for the event.  

Toys can be dropped off at The Foundry on Sundays or at 3 Bean Coffee any day.  Or shop our Target registry or Amazon Wish List and have toys shipped directly to us with no shipping fee.

To give a financial contribution, click here.  Click on "giving" and under "designated fund" choose "Christmas Store" in the dropdown menu.  

2.  Serve at the Christmas Store

It takes several volunteers each day of the Christmas Store to make this event work.  There are various positions available for various skill levels and ages.   Sign up here to volunteer.

3.  Tell your friends. 

Invite your friends and family to be part of the store through donating or volunteering!  If your company would like to be part of the event through corporate sponsorship, opportunities are available if you contact Lindsay Ferguson
