Who We Are

Each year hundreds of community volunteers work together to ensure that all northern Anoka County residents will have food on their tables for the holidays and their children will have gifts under their Christmas tree.  We started in 1981 and now each year we provide brighter holidays for over 1,200 Anoka County households with more than 3,000 children.  (.... read more)

How We Help

Food, toys and money donations are collected through drives at many area schools, drop sites at area businesses, and through generous financial contributions from local businesses and individuals. The Toys for Joy drive collects donations within Anoka County. The local members of the St. Paul Area Associaton of Realtors buy hundreds of toys. The Toys for Tots, organized by the Marine Corps, provides the rest of the toys we distribute. (... read more)

The Anoka Area Christmas Committee and the Toys for Joy volunteers put joy back into the holiday Dec. 19 and 20.
