THE DENVER SANTA CLAUS SHOP

At the Denver Santa Claus Shop, we’re all about the toys!  Our mission is that every child should have a toy at Christmas. We are a volunteer-run, nondenominational nonprofit that has helped well over 1 million local children in our 88-year history.

Denver Santa Claus Shop is unlike other nonprofits because it…

  • Sets up a giant, temporary “toy store” open for 4 days in December
  • Invites parents who are “referred” to DSCS from social service agencies
  • Enables parents to SHOP, choosing toys for their children
  • Gives parents a 100-point certificate for each child when they arrive
  • “Values” toys from 5 to 100 points each, so parents can select several toys for each child 
  • Is believed to be the longest, continuously-running charity of its kind in the U.S

To fulfill our mission of, “A Toy for Every Girl & Boy” we…

  • Depend on generous people, companies, organizations, etc. to donate new and gently used toys
  • Are the toy recipient of 9CARES COLORADOSHARES annual winter drive in November each year
  • Work with local merchants that serve as toy drop-off sites
  • Rely on hundreds of volunteers each year
  • Rely on hundreds of volunteers each year
