Share-A-Gift is an all-volunteer, non-secular annual holiday project that provides toys, books, and bicycles for children of low-income families in the area of Colorado’s Boulder Valley School District. Share-A-Gift is a 501(c)(3) under IRS rules and has operated as a non-profit, all-volunteer organization since 1972. Each year, Share-A-Gift helps connect over 600 families representing over 1500 girls and boys, birth to age 14, with community donations.

Share-A-Gift collects toys at sites around the city of Boulder and in areas of eastern Boulder County starting Thanksgiving week through the middle of December. Volunteers set up and organize a “Toy Shop” in a donated warehouse space where toys are distributed to families-in-need. On a single day, all eligible parents are able to come and “shop” – selecting toys for their children with the help of 100s of volunteer assistants.

To be successful each holiday season, Share-A-Gift needs thousands of new and gently-used toys, books, games, puzzles, and bikes for infants, children and adolescents up to age 14. Share-A-Gift allows Boulder families and children the opportunity to meaningfully participate in gift-sharing by donating new or gently-used toys, books, and bikes with families who will appreciate getting these gifts.
