Caroling Caravan families deliver toys and bring Christmas cheer to VIP kids and families who are not able to shop at Nathaniel’s Toy Shop. You will pick up a bag of pre-selected toys from Nathaniel’s Toy Shop to bring to your assigned VIP family. We encourage you to invite your friends and family to join you to carol when you deliver the gifts!
Caroling for Kids
Individuals and families volunteer their time on Christmas Day to sing carols and deliver Christmas goodies to uplift the spirits of those in the hospital. We also use seasoned musicians to lead the teams on guitar, keyboard, etc. This program began in children’s hospitals in 1998, but has now expanded to include other hospitals, making it Caroling for Kids “of all ages.” Please note that space is limited for these teams.
Help us prepare goodies, tag candy canes & new beanie babies, and make cookie platters for Christmas day! Location varies between Nathaniel’s Toy Shop & our Nathaniel’s Hope office. If you are interested in having a group help us, contact our office (407-857-8224).
