Working at Santa’s Toy Shop is one of my favorite Miss New Hampshire traditions at Christmas. We volunteer with the Salvation Army, sorting toys and then helping families from across New Hampshire select their toys. Toy sorting is especially fun, because you get to see all of the amazing new toys and you know they are going to make someone very happy.
The Union Leader Santa Fund has supported the Salvation Army for 54 years. Since 1959, the Santa Fund has raised over $7.3 million, thanks to the generosity of the community and local businesses. Santa Fund dollars help Santa provide warm clothing, meals and toys during the holidays, as well as support Kids’ Café, summer camps and other critical programs throughout the year.
Donations are accepted year round:
