We need lots of volunteers to prepare for this year’s Toy Store Event, which will be held on Saturday, December 12th at Chester Community Charter School (Aston Campus)! Our event is going to look much different this year, but we intend to still bring joy to the children of Chester during the Christmas season. This year we are looking for personal shoppers and wrappers who will do the shopping and wrapping on the 10th and 11th of December, in West Chester at Christ Community Church. Donated toys will already be on hand at the church and will be sorted on the morning of Thursday, December 10th.
That afternoon, and the next day, Personal shoppers will be given a child’s name and wish list. They will use this list to shop through donated gifts for their selected child. Wrappers will then take these gifts, wrap them, bag, and tag them so that they are ready for delivery to Chester. Once completed, bags will be loaded into a truck on Friday afternoon and moved to Chester on Saturday morning where families will be assigned times the following day to come drive through a winter wonderland and pick up their child’s gifts.
