WACO, TX — For over ten years, Mission Waco has opened up their own store to provide toys for children in need.

Gifts that are donated and bought from whole sale will be discounted 80% off the original price.

The store allows for families the need help to bring Christmas to their homes.

"This toy store is just as much about the families, the parents, as it is the kids that actually get to receive the gifts. It's so much fun to watch parents come in here and actually be able to afford to buy gifts for their own kids for Christmas," said John Calaway, executive director of Mission Waco.

Mission Waco is still accepting donations of unwrapped toys. Families who have registered will be able to visit the location the weekend of the 13th and 14th.
