Caring at Christmas brings hope to our neighbors all year long!

You can bring hope to our neighborhood families this Christmas through the Shepherd Christmas Store. Every year we support our neighborhood families by giving them the opportunity to shop for gifts at the Shepherd Christmas Store so that they can show their kids how much they care and make Christmas a season of hope!

Each year Shepherd relies on donations to supply the annual Christmas Store. Businesses and churches can host a toy drive at their location and fill up their boxes with toys. Toys are then picked up and sorted by volunteers in preparation for the Christmas Store. Learn more about hosting a toy drive.

Individuals can also donate new, unwrapped toys to Shepherd. Below are links to our Target and Amazon wish lists. You can purchase items from these lists and send them directly to Shepherd. Also, you can always drop new and unwrapped toys off at Shepherd!


Please drop off all donations by Thursday, December 14.

Christmas Store Dates 2023:

Not one for buying toys? Can’t volunteer? You can make a simple cash donation to Shepherd to be used to serve our Shepherd neighbors in other ways this holiday season.

Volunteer. Give Toys. Donate. No matter how you give, you are giving hope this Christmas – and all year long!
