Toy Drive with Ace in the City


  • Uptown Church 1219 West 31st Street Minneapolis, MN, 55408 United States (map)

Every week, over 50 students, K – 8th grade, come to Powderhorn Park for an evening of art, math support, games and food! In efforts to reinforce good behavior and instill a strong sense of work ethic from their kids, Ace In the City has what they call “The Ace Store”—an accumulation of toys and prizes that students can purchase with tickets that are earned through positive engagement and participation during programs. Ace in the City opens this store a few times every year, including every December.

From November 8 – December 13, UC will be collecting toys on Sundays to support Ace in the City in these efforts. We invite you to jump in with us! Ace is accepting age-appropriate toys for students ranging from kindergarten through 8th grade. Ace asks their partners to keep the dollar value of toys between $5 - $20. After purchasing your toy(s), please bring them on a Sunday morning and drop them off at the table in the entry way.
