Each year the NSRBA collects thousands of toys and then gives families the opportunity to come and shop at our Toy Store.

The toys are collected from the churches of the NSRBA.  If you would like to join us in this wonderful ministry by providing toys to be used in this ministry here are some guidelines to follow:
  • All toys must be new
  • All toys must be brought to the NSRBA Office (to be sorted, "priced", and divided)
  • The Deadline to drop off toys is December 1st.
********PLEASE NOTE********
