Christmas Kids

Urban Mission runs a special Christmas toy program for local children in the Ohio Valley.

Each year, more than 1,000 children wake up Christmas morning to open gifts donated by generous Urban Mission donors.

This year, we’d like to go a step further and make Christmas special for the parents as well.

This year, when our families come to pick up toys for their children, we’d like to give them the joy and delight of choosing Christmas gifts for their kids.

Now, instead of pre-wrapped toys distributed to families, toys will be displayed on shelves for families to “shop” through.

In order to make this new model a success, we  need you.

We are seeking toy donations for all ages. Gifts that are always a big hit include: bikes and scooters, anything Frozen or Doc McStuffins, and Lego. We also have an Amazon Wish List to help you shop. 

Finally, please contact Linda Smith ( or 740.282.2911, if you would like to host a toy drive or volunteer at the Urban Mission.

We are looking forward to another cheery season, offering families in our community dignity alongside affordable gifts.

Thank you for partnering with us!
