Because Hope is A Must
MUST serves almost 20,000 children a year, a heartbreaking reality in these desperate economic times. At MUST, our team of volunteers and staff members go beyond the basics to offer extra services to the children we serve each year. Christmas morning is exciting for the 4,000+ children whose parents come to shop at one of the two MUST Toy Shops. Children in Cherokee and Cobb counties receive toys, blankets, hats, scarves, gloves, underwear, socks and a family game. Thanks to thousands of donations, the Toy Shops are well stocked for each parent to make special selections for their children!

Other Ways to Help
Every child receives a blanket from Toy Shop. We need to collect at least 4,000 blankets each year. Please consider making no-sew blankets. They are easy to construct and are great for group projects!
Host a Gift Drive for Tweens/Teens:
The Toy Shop serves children ages 0-18, however one group that is often overlooked is the tweens/teens. Please consider hosting a gift drive for these ages. Suggested items include:
