Action Center

A peek inside Santa’s toy shop

Crowds show up to pick out toys


On Dec. 11, the Action Center kicked off its annual Santa Shop with a crowd of hundreds on hand to pick out toys for their children. Over the ensuing six days, more than 3,500 low income parents visited Lakewood’s Faith Mountain church to select gifts for their children. 

“We try to make sure that there’s something for every child under every tree,” said Barbara Penning, director of volunteer programs and in-kind donations. “What makes this special is our clients get to shop for their gifts.”
