Mission Trunk: We’re collecting toys in December!

Mission Trunk: We’re collecting toys in December!

We’re a few days before the start of December, but it’s time once again to shift the focus of our MIssion Trunk, located in the Common. (Learn more about our Mission Trunk here).

From November 16-December 11, we’ll be collecting toys for Christmas. 

In order to be equitable to children, we’re asking for each new toy to be between $10-20 in value. They should be new and unwrapped. Below are some suggestions to help your shopping:

  • Crib Toys
  • Push-Pull-Roll toys
  • Building Blocks
  • Cars/Trucks
  • Dolls/Action Figures
  • Small Lego Sets
  • Games

In order to get them delivered by Christmas our deadline is December 11. Thank you for your generosity in helping to support our local mission partners. Simply pick up an extra item on your normal trip to the store and drop them in the Mission Trunk next time you are at Colonial.

We’ll be delivering these Toys to VEAP. VEAP is a long-time mission partner of Colonial and they provide a range of services for the residents of Bloomington, Richfield, Edina, and South Minneapolis. VEAP’s goal is to provide each needy family with one toy (value $10-20) and one book, which was a part of our October Mission Trunk collection. VEAP needs volunteers.

Our goal is to fill and empty our Mission Trunk many times over with toys!

Thank you so much for your generosity. We have been thrilled with the response to our Mission Trunk and every month we’ve had to empty it several times, only to have it be filled again. Our team that empties the Mission Trunk and delivers our donations is doing a great job, but the response has been so great that they could use some help. Please click here if you are interested in serving on our “Trunk Team”, our team of volunteers who work to sort, organize and deliver our donations.
