The 2021 CUMO Christmas store is Saturday, Dec 11. The store will operate as it has in previous years with new toys and games donated for youth served by CUMO. Parents, grandparents, and guardians can purchase the toys at a discount for their children.

KEY DATES: 

  • Wednesday Dec 8 – Last day to drop off toys at the church building
  • Friday, Dec. 10, 7-9 p.m.  – Volunteers from Northeast, Withamsville and CUMO help set toys out at the Millvale Community Center.  
  • Saturday, Dec. 11, Noon -2 p.m. – Families purchase toys at a discounted price.  

We are especially in need of toys for 2–5-year-olds. We tend to run out of toys quickly in this age group. 

Please spend no more than $45 per toy. Most toys and games are from $10 to $40 each.  Do not wrap the gifts and please leave the price tag on the toys.
