Partner organizations are a key element of the Christmas Store. Typically, partner organizations ask their patrons, customers and members to donate new toys to the store, for children from ages birth to 14. The suggested price range for donated toys is $20-30. Toys will arrive for the store throughout the month of November.

One of the easiest ways to help stock the Christmas Store is by purchasing toys at your favorite retailer and having them delivered directly to 820 East Williams Street, Apex, NC 27502  (United Church, host of the Christmas Store each year).

Online: See idea lists by age & gender on Amazon by following this link.

Locally: If you’d like to take advantage of free delivery but shop locally, visit our toy store partner Science Safari on Kildaire Farm Road in Cary; they will deliver your purchased toys directly to the Christmas Store.

Toy donations are due by December 8, 2024, whether shipped or dropped off onsite at United or any partner’s location. The Apex ReStore (826 East Williams Street) is also a toy donation location.  To see other Christmas Store partners and toy donation locations, click the link below.
