A little more about The Last Minute Toy Store...



To joyfully provide the love of Jesus through one-on-one care to the parents and guardians of Davidson County as they shop for their CHILD(REN) IN NEED.


Since 1993, The Last Minute Toy Store has distributed free toys and other gifts to thousands of children and youth in need who live in Davidson County.

The Last Minute Toy Store will be held at the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office Services Center at 5117 Harding Place, Nashville, TN 37211.


The Last Minute Toy Store is a 501c(3) ministry of Highland Park Church in partnership with Sheriff Daron Hall and The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office along with The United States Marine Reserve Toys for Tots, churches, business, civic groups, and individuals to provide gifts to Nashville’s FAMILIES IN NEED since 1993.


Each December, the Last Minute Toy Store serves about 6,000 children and youth from over 1,500 families – distributing over 20,000 toys/gifts to go along with books, stocking stuffers, sporting goods, fruit and candy canes given to each child.


This is truly a labor of love for those involved, and it tremendous community involvement and over 1,000 volunteers each year.
