Christmas Shop

Support our annual Christmas Shop helping families in need provide Christmas toys for their Children. Last year we provided toys for 150 children at local area schools in the South Loop and Bronzeville neighborhoods of Chicago and homeless children at Pacific Garden Mission Shelter. Families were provided the dignity of purchasing toys valued up to $40 or more for costs between $1 to $8 per toy. This year’s Christmas Shop will be on December 17th at The National Teacher’s Academy. You can help in one of two ways. Donate a toy or make a financial donation.

Donate Toys

Easily make toy donations through our Amazon Wish List or select toys you wish to donate. You can order items and have them shipped directly to The National Teacher’s Academy.

Special Note: Please do not remove toys from the Amazon Wish List when making your selection. This will allow the toy to remain available for others to donate.

Toy donations should be shipped to:
