Slidell Junior High Gymnasium on Pennsylvania Ave.  


This year will mark the 37rd annual distribution of toys by St. Tammany Toys for Tots of Slidell.


All children MUST present a ticket for entry.


THERE WILL BE NO CHILDREN ADMITTED WITHOUT THEIR PARENT. Do not drop off young children with their sibling at the giveaway. We cannot be responsible for your children.

Along with your child's ticket, you MUST present proof of residency within the city limits of Slidell.

Due to a decrease in donations, ONLY CHILDREN FROM THE CITY OF SLIDELL will be admitted.  Tickets will be distributed at local elementary schools to students on the Free Lunch Program. The parents of children who are below school age or home schooled MUST present proof of Slidell residency & Slidell Drivers License to be admitted.

PLEASE, to make things easier on you and us, have your Drivers License AND Proof of Residency(lease or utility bill with your name on it) ready when asked for it in line and... please come to celebrate with these children and make it a happy time for ALL!

Wow! What a terrific Giveaway we had December 5, 2015!

The students that volunteer the two days of the Giveaway enjoy decorating and setting up Toyland as much as they enjoy shopping with the children on the day of the Giveaway. They are such a delight to work with!

Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus made a grand entrance in front of the eyes of over 3000 children! It's such a magical time!

Santa heard the wishes of many children... some funny, some heartfelt.

One little girl even told Santa that "she didn't want toys this year. She wanted all of her toys to go to the children in the hospital."

We were thrilled with the smiles on the children's faces! They loved the toys and had a wonderful time choosing which ones they would take home. The children also received a goodie bag from Mrs. Claus filled with candy and fruit.

Our sponsors and donors are the key to the yearly Giveaway... We could not do it without them!

With your support, we hope to be able to put smiles on the faces and in the hearts of children for many years to come! Thank you!


The Giveaway in 2014 was one of the most successful years we have had... and one of the most fun! Carol Stark is the brain behind making sure so many children are happy at Christmas.

And then came the contributors, donors, and volunteers... We could not have done this without your help!  









And, most important of all, what this is all about ~ The SMILES on the faces of the children!

Oh, what a year we had! Thanks to all who participated!


The 2011 Toys for Tots Christmas giveaway served over 4,000 children on the morning of December 10. Some of the children had been in line to receive toys since 2 a.m. that morning. Santa and Mrs. Clause arrived via firetruck to the delight of the children, and proceeded to greet each child before they went into their toy paradise.
