Every gift counts, please support our Holiday Toy and Gift Shop this year

Last year, Samaritan House gave more than 7,000 toys and over 600 new coats to more than 1,000 children in our community at our Holiday Toy Shop. This year you can help us reach even more children at the Holiday Toy Shop between December 14 – 16. Create a happy holiday for children, whose families are scrambling to pay the rent, let alone, purchase holiday gifts. New coats bring dignity to children and allow them to fit in with their peers.

Here’s some ways you can help us:

Donate new children’s coats – sizes 5-14 for boys and girls including new coats suitable for larger teens.

Donate new unwrapped toys for children – aged infant to 15 years. Great examples that our clients are excited to receive include Legos, educational baby toys, arts and crafts kits, sports equipment, action figures and popular character dolls.

Donate directly to Samaritan House – we will purchase the toys or new coats to fill in where needed. Donate here.

$15 buys a small toy
$25 buys a medium toy or a new coat
$50 buys a large toy

Your donations can be delivered to Samaritan House, 4031 Pacific Boulevard, San Mateo – third floor. Hours 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. The deadline for donations to be received is Friday December 15th.
