Save the Date! Dumas Wesley’s Annual Toy Store is December 9, 2017

For over a century, Dumas Wesley Community Center has had the privilege of serving the Mobile community through a broad range of services for the elderly, unemployed, homeless and at-risk youth. One of the most beloved events is our Annual Christmas Toy Store.

We invite you to join us in helping needy families provide a Christmas for their children by supporting this popular event. The Christmas Toy Store serves 75 low-income families residing in the local Crichton neighborhood and Sybil Smith Family Village, Dumas Wesley’s transitional housing program. The Dumas Wesley Community Center provides parents with an opportunity to buy new toys and bikes for Christmas at a fraction of their retail value. This year, the Toy Store will take place Saturday, December 9, 2017.  

How Can I Help?

  • Allow Dumas Wesley to set up a Christmas display asking for new toy and bike donations from your staff and patrons
  • Donate new toys or bikes for our store by December 4, 2017
  • Become a Corporate Sponsor and help our elves shop for new toys ($500.00)
  • Sponsor a family who will be shopping at the toy store ($100.00)
  • Volunteer the day of the event (18 and older please)

All donors will receive special recognition on our website and social media outlets.  We hope you will support our event and help us bring the joy of Christmas to disadvantaged children and families in our community.  The Toy Store supports year round programs in the After School Achievement Program.
