Unwrapping  Gifts

Making the Holiday Season Brighter, One Child at a Time

Who We Are + What We Stand For

A Community-Driven Organization

Winona Area Toys for Kids is a nonprofit organization that assists local families by providing free toys for their children during the holiday season. Each year, toys are collected at donation barrels located at businesses throughout Winona. We also partner with local businesses and organizations who generously provide monetary donations to keep our organization operating year after year.


We are a community-driven organization and aim to support and serve Winona and surrounding communities including Lewiston, Rollingstone, and Saint Charles.

Fostering an Inclusive Environment

The Toy Store is an inclusive space where anyone can come shop for their children. We require no sort of financial verification, just identification for yourself and the children you are shopping for. We aim to foster an environment where everyone feels welcome.

New Location for 2022
