How to Donate Toys or Teen Gifts

New, unwrapped toys and other age-appropriate gifts in the $10 - $20 price range are needed for ages newborn to eighteen.  Gifts for all ages are helpful, but in the past we have had a special need for items for teenagers. 


Items can be brought directly to the site of the Toy Store, Sixty-First Avenue United Methodist Church, 6018 New York Avenue, Nashville, TN 37209.  Because of storage issues, we ask that toys be brought after December 5.  If other arrangements need to be made, please call (615) 292-7184. 

If you would prefer to send a monetary donation and let us buy the items, we would be more than happy to do so.  Please indicate your gift should be used for "Teen or Toddler gifts".  (see additional details below)


How to Make a Financial Gift

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation for The Last Minute Toy Store, a check can be made out to “Sixty-First Avenue United Methodist Church” noting “Toy Store” on the “For” line.   Send to 6018 New York Avenue, Nashville, TN 37209.  All donations will be used to buy toys/teen gifts.  Overhead expenses are covered by other sources.

Sixty-First Avenue United Methodist Church
Our vision:  We seek to follow Christ in the “Nations” neighborhood – sharing God’s love and sowing seeds of hope.

Sixty-First Avenue United Methodist Church is an over hundred year old church located in a low-income neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee known as “The Nations.”  We feel called by God to be especially in ministry with struggling folk, the ones that Jesus called “the least of these.” 

We are a small but growing church of one hundred and ten members, most of whom are themselves low-income, including several homeless members.  For this reason we are only able to have ministries like The Last Minute Toy Store through the support of the larger denomination and people of good will throughout the community and across the country.

Sixty-First Avenue UMC has two pastors.   The senior pastor is Rev. Paul Slentz, an ordained elder, who has been in ministry at Sixty-First Avenue since 1997.  Rev. Myriam Cortes, joined us in 2012 and she heads up the ministries with our Hispanic neighbors.
