Community Christmas Shoppe

ACTION Community Christmas Shoppe will bring together more than 40 churches to provide free toys and the message of Jesus to 1000+ families across Ventura County.  Qualified low-income families are invited through participating churches and agencies.  While parents choose gifts, there are children's activities. We anticipate a much great need this Christmas so we need YOUR help!

There is also a separate Special Needs Christmas Shoppe just for low-income families who have children with special needs.  Most websites of toy stores like Toys-R-Us, Target, Walmart have a section with special need toys.  Please make sure you put any special needs toys in the box marked for that purpose.

Donate: We need thousands of toys to support this effort!

Volunteer: To sign up online go to www.actionvc.org

Financial Donations are welcome!

Join us in providing families in need the true gift of Christmas... Jesus!  If you have questions, contact Doty at dotys@calvarycc.org or 818.575.2271
