Toy Distribution

Toy Distribution differs from Adopt-a-Family and Adopt-a-Senior in that a donor gathers new toys to be distributed to the greater community instead of being paired directly with a family. This is a great opportunity for companies, churches, or community clubs looking for a year-end donation opportunity. Specifically, toys are distributed to children from birth to age 18 whose families utilize CAP’s Food Shelf or Energy Assistance programs. Collected toys should not be gift wrapped.


Distribution Date

  • December 12th-13th: Toy Distribution donations can be dropped off at CAP. We recognize that this is a limited amount of time to drop off your gifts. Please contact Maritza Real at [email protected] to make alternate arrangements if needed.
  • Drop-off times include:
    December 12th: 9am-11am
    December 13th: 12pm-2pm

Drop-off Location

All gift donations should be dropped off at our new location:

738 1st Ave East
Shakopee, MN 55379
Please go to the service door.

Please refer to your specific program (above) for drop-off times. For donors who have generously registered for more than one HFTH program, you are welcome to bring all of your gift’s donations at the same time.


Email Maritza Real at [email protected] or call the Hope for the Holidays Hotline at 952-402-9843.

If you’re interested in being adopted for the holiday gift program, you will need to work with your CAP case worker. If you utilize our food shelf or energy assistance program, you can enroll in Toy Distribution by contacting those programs directly.

See you again in 2023!
