Our Programs

We serve youth in the state of Washington through unique programs in communities, homeless shelters, and workplaces.

With your help, we extend opportunities to help the children and their families.

Dave "Hendu" Henderson Scholarship

Dave “Hendu” Henderson Education Scholarship was established to recognize outstanding high school seniors who exemplifies the high standards and community that Dave believed in. 

hot lunch

Every year, Toys for Kids picks a school district to pay off their hot lunch debt. 36% of Seattle School District kids are on free or reduced lunch.

back to school supplies

Providing school children with essential  supplies they need to learn can be expensive, but Toys for Kids is here to help. Supplies can be obtained at our yearly Back to School Supplies Drive.

 Toy donations

Through the generosity of our sponsors and individual donors, we are able to make sure that Santa Claus is alive and well and will show up for these kids during the holidays.

 christmas in july

Christmas in July takes place in July at a Mariners game. We take 350 kids from the different agencies that we serve. For most of these kids this will be the first game that they will be attending.


Toys for kids partners with a beauty salon to give the parents of domestic violence and homeless shelters a day to feel special and spread their wings. All services are donated.


Get Involved


The Toys for Kids donations directly benefit children in need throughout the state of Washington. Annually, we serve more than 11,000 kids throughout the year. Often the toys we give them are the only ones they receive. Sometimes, it’s the only toy they have ever received.

Every year we raise money for some of the less fortunate in our community. Proceeds will benefit kids and families who need it most!

Volunteer opportunities
