Reminder: Edmonds Food Bank Toy Shop looking for volunteers Friday, Saturday


The Edmonds Food Bank Toy Shop needs volunteers to assist with the annual event that benefits families who receive assistance from the food bank.

The Toy Shop is a one-day event where parents “shop” for a new toy, stuffed animal and a book for their children. Last year nearly 2,000 children benefited from this program. Volunteers are needed to set up Friday, Dec. 9 and for the Toy Shop event itself Saturday, Dec. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m.

The event is held at Edmonds United Methodist Church. For more information and to sign up, email


  1. I am the coordinator of this event and in interest of full disclosure we served about 1100 children last year. Although in all honestly I do fully expect our numbers to increase this year..I hope not to 2,000 though. We appreciate the publicity and would love volunteers ( if you are bilingual that is a huge plus!) and donations of new toys as well!! thank you
