Santa's Workshop

Realities For Children's Santa's Workshop is a grass roots effort that has grown into a county-wide toy and winter gear distribution.  This event began as an unsolicited movement by local businesses, schools, neighborhoods, churches and other groups who set out to collect and deliver new toys for the children we serve over the holidays.  This movement has grown every year -as the giving spirit spreads and people reach out to their social circles - and continues to provide more and more for these children in need. It is now the single largest distribution of toys to children who have been abused or neglected in Larimer County...annually raising donations valued at over $30,000.

Toy collections begin in November each year through a network of local businesses who are willing to place one of our Big Red Bins in their offices. On a magical Friday in December every year, these items are distributed through Realities For Children Charities to all 31 of our Youth Affiliate Agencies in Larimer County. From there, these shoppers play Santa to the children and families they serve.
