This year Crossroads East Side Christmas Gift Drive will benefit Inter Parish Ministry's Toy Store. This is one of IPM’s growing services as it is a path out of poverty for many families. Each parent can select 4 – 5 new toys plus stocking stuffers, wrapping paper and a selection of socks, underwear, hats and mittens. IPM’s Toy Store serves families with children 12 and under (IPM also has a general table for children 18 and under). Each new toy is valued at $30 and under.

To participate, buy a gift from the list below and return it (unwrapped) to Crossroads East Side on the weekends of 12/7-8 and 12/14-15.

  • LOL Surprise Dolls
  • Lego Sets
  • Science Experiment Kits
  • Coding Toys Craft Kits
  • Frozen 2 Toys
  • Anything Marvel
  • Earbuds or Headphones
  • Drones
  • Bluetooth Speakers
  • Teen Jewelry
  • Hoodies (for tweens, adult sizes small, medium or large)
  • New socks, underwear, hats, mittens (12 and under)

*Please note: the greatest need is for boys 10-12.

We will transport all collected gifts to IPM’s Toy Store for distribution on Monday and Tuesday, December 16 and 17th. Thank you for helping us bring the joy of Christmas to families all over the east side and in our own backyards!
