THINGS YOU NEED ON SHOPPING DAY
No pre-registration is necessary, but the parent or guardian must bring the following on their shopping day:
- Picture I.D. for parent or guardian
- Proof of Davidson County residence (such as utility bill, rent receipt, etc.)
- Something official showing children’s name and date of birth (such as birth certificate; government assistance card or letter; shot record; etc.). Social security cards are not necessary.
- Proof of Income: (such as pay stub; government assistance letter; separation from work notice; child support letter; other proof of need)
Out of fairness to all in need, only those families in Davidson County who have NOT already received toys through other Toy Programs will be eligible for assistance. Also, each child may only receive toys from one family member or guardian. For example, if a mother gets toys for her children, a grandparent or other family member may not get toys for those same children.
