25th Anniversary of the Toy Shoppe of Warren, PA


 

25 Years of making children happy in Warren County


We are Excited.

For 25 wonderful years over 85 dedicated retired volunteers have made more than 30,000 toys for underprivileged children in Warren County. In that time, the volunteers have experienced the opportunity to socialize, have fun, experience camaraderie, and to stimulate their mental and physical skills. But real happiness comes when they experience firsthand the joy and excitement the children have when they receive these toys. It is an indescribable experience.


The Toy Shoppe of Warren PA.

The Toy Shoppe of Warren PA is a retired volunteer project under the umbrella of the Penn Soil Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council, a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization serving Northwestern Pennsylvania since 1964. For 25 years The Toy Shoppe has provided wooden toys, puzzles, and games, at no cost, to the children of Warren County. In that time, we made over 30,000 toys that were distributed directly to children through The Salvation Army at Christmas time and through 23 other non-profit agencies and Day Care centers including the Department of Human Services and Head Start, all of them serving the needs of children in Warren County. They use these toys to educate and entertain the children they serve.

In 2023 we distributed 1,850 toys, puzzles, and games to our partner agencies and added a new partner to our list, The Warren County School District. We provided them with toys to be used at recess, when the weather is bad, to 14 kindergarten classes in the 4 elementary schools in the County. This is a partnership we will continue.

How Can you Help?

Your financial donation helps to purchase tools, parts, paints, paint supplies, and wood needed to produce toys, games, and puzzles. This support allows our volunteer woodworkers and painters to produce and distribute toys free of charge to the children and to the non-profit agencies serving their needs in Warren.
