TOY CHEST PROGRAM

Online Registration Available Beginning December 1st

Parents continue to struggle with the ever-increasing costs of housing, energy, transportation, and food. In turn, family budgets are stretched thin, and parents often have less money available for gifts for the holidays. ResourceWest’s Toy Chest provides new gifts to over 1,200 children in our community.

Help a child celebrate the holidays! Donate to ResourceWest’s Toy Chest.

Toy Chest Program Update:

ResourceWest provides free holiday toys and gifts to help children & youth in the Hopkins and Minnetonka School District communities to enjoy a special holiday time.
