Summary: The Community Toy Store allows parents/guardians to buy new donated toys for their families for 70-90% off retail value. All proceeds from the sales of the donated toys will go to The Whatcom Dream, Rebound of Whatcom County and Bellingham Promise, allowing families to be both recipients and contributors!

In addition to buying toys, we are looking for volunteers to serve at the Toy Store. Northlake will be working the morning shift on Saturday, December 9th, from 8:00 to 12:30pm - there are various jobs and times from which to choose. This is a great way to serve and give back to our community.

Also, we will be providing refreshments to the shoppers, so we are looking for donations of breakfast-type baked goods or fruit (bananas, oranges, or grapes).

Special Training Session for All Toy Store Volunteers: On Sunday, December 3rd, we will hold a 1-hour training session in the Fireside Room during each service (9:00 & 10:45). We are asking all Toy Store volunteers to attend one of these sessions. Attendees will be given valuable tools for working at this event including specific training for the volunteer position they are signed up for.
