Last Minute Toy Store
The Last Minute Store serves families of Davidson County who don't have resources to provide gifts for their children at Christmas and is often the last resort for these families. These are children who have not been served by another agency. Toys, books, stocking stuffers, and other gifts are available to the "shopper" who can select specific items for their child. This is the only organization in Davidson County that supports teens up to age 18 in addition to younger children, infant-12 years. LTMS serves approximately 5,000 children each year.
The Last Minute Toy Store (LMTS) began as a ministry of the 61st Ave. UMC and has served the Nashville area for 24 years. 61st Ave UMC unfortunately closed this year, but LMTS will continue at a new location, Davidson County Sheriff's Service Center at 5117 Harding Place. This facility allows better coordination of the process, has adequate parking, and has bus service right to the door. As Nashville has grown, LMTS itself has grown and is now a 501c3 Tennessee Nonprofit Corporation. This nonprofit organization is in partnership with United Methodist Churches, Highland Park Church, and the Marine Corps Toys for Tots. There is a special need for volunteers on Friday, December 15th. Visit www.lastminutetoystore.com for more opportunities to serve!
