Giftmart is an outreach ministry that is partnering with Churches, businesses and the O’Fallon greater community to collect new toys. In an effort to preserve dignity, parents from Giftmart’s partner school here in O’Fallon, Dardenne Elementary School will be able to choose gifts for their children at a discounted price of $2 per toy.
Giftmart seeks to reimagine the holiday charity model by harnessing the generosity of communities to do more than just place toys under the tree in under-resourced neighborhoods. You can provide the gift of community by joining our team to help plan, shop, or set up. You can join the team now and help make a difference in the life of a student and their family.
