Toy Share

Every year, thousands of families in Central Pennsylvania struggle to provide for their family. We know that Christmastime can be especially difficult.  

Through Toy Share, since 2003, it has been our pleasure to serve hundreds of families every year who are experiencing difficult times. Our goal this year is to serve 900 children in Cumberland, Dauphin and Northern York Counties.

We will provide Christmas toys for children in need, along with food and clothing for their families. Giving of your finances is a great way to join with us to help make a difference!
Questions? Email or call 717-737-6560. We are very glad to answer any questions you might have!
