Denver Santa Claus Shop


Welcome to the Denver Santa Claus Shop! Our mission is A Toy for Every Girl & Boy.”

We collect and distribute free toys to local children in need – many of whom might not otherwise have a toy to open at Christmas. DSCS is a nondenominational, all-volunteer-run nonprofit with no paid staff or overhead costs. We share our Holiday Spirit annually and served nearly 13,000 youngsters in 2020. DSCS has helped more than 1 million children in its 91-year history.

Each Fall, hundreds of volunteers collect toys and donations, and then create a huge, temporary toy store – the Denver Santa Claus Shop. The store is stocked with toys and books for our shoppers for 4 heartwarming days in December.

Qualified families are referred to DSCS by Social Service Agencies such as Denver Human Services, Denver Public Schools, churches, shelters, etc. Parents are invited to DSCS to actually SHOP, choosing toys for their children ages newborn through 11 years old.    

Despite COVID in 2020, we continued our mission by holding a “drive-thru” toy giveaway instead of our usual store. Families in need pre-registered for the Shop and received new toys based on their children’s ages.

Now we’re gearing up for the 2021 Shop. If you would like to help children have a happier Holiday Season, please click on the tabs above.
