Welcome to The Denver Santa Claus Shop

We are a volunteer, nondenominational nonprofit organization that shares the spirit of Christmas with local children in need – helping nearly 1 million youngsters in our 84-year history. We collect and distribute free toys to children who might not otherwise have a toy to open at Christmas.

Our mission is "A Toy For Every Girl & Boy"

For the past 5 years, we have served an average of 16,000 children each year. Families are referred to us by social service agencies, and parents are invited to The Shop to choose toys for their children.

Each Fall, hundreds of volunteers collect toys and donations, and then build a huge temporary toy store – The Denver Santa Claus Shop. The store is stocked with donated toys for our special shoppers for 4 heartwarming days in December.

If you would like to help children in our community have a happier Holiday Season, please chose one of the options on the right.

Thank you to our 2014 Golf Tournament Sleigh Sponsors

Crumpet the Elf returns for more hilarious holiday hijinks in this acclaimed one-man show from Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company, presented by Off-Center. Looking for a little more snark in your stocking this year? David Sedaris' off-beat tales from his stint as a Macy's elf in New York City is the sure cure for the common Christmas show.
