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

Samaritan House gives more than 7,000 toys and over 600 new coats to more than 3,000 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 13 – 15. 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 4-16 for boys and girls including new coats suitable for larger teens – or warm hoodies and padded vests.

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, gifts or new coats to fill in where needed. Donate here – don’t forget to choose Holiday Program from the Select Cause list.

$15-25 buys a small toy
$25-35 buys a medium toy or a new coat
$35 and over 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 14th.
