We welcome toys and monetary donations all year!  We strive to provide the newest and hottest toys to our military kids.  Our Toy Buyers closely monitor trends and purchase the toys that kids want most.  We apply for grants from various businesses and foundations but we can always use more help so we can serve as many children as possible each year.  Please consider donating! We also accept donations of new books and board games!

The success of Santa's Workshop is a direct result of the generous support received from the military community and from the many individuals, private organizations and businesses in and around Central Texas. With their help, our typical annual inventory consists of more than 100,000 toys, 3,600 books, and 3,600 games. The approximate monetary value of gifts distributed for each child is $42, but the non-monetary value is immeasurable.

Ruck March Donations


The Elves at Santa’s Workshop work year-round to provide the best selection of in-demand and popular toys for our military girls and boys but we need your help! Ruck Marches are a great opportunity for units to help Santa’s Workshop stock our shelves while building unit pride and esprit de corps!

We have been very lucky this year and our shelves are overflowing!  We have so many amazing toys in our very limited storage space that our inventory elves are always busy but we love units that want to help.  If you are interested in participating in a ruck march for the 2023 Christmas Season, we are happy to accept your donations!

We are always in need of board games which are essential to our mission, as each family will receive one. We believe that family games contribute to family togetherness and bonding. Board games not your thing? We also need BOOKS from all reading levels!  And they fit perfectly in rucksacks!

IF you are interested in organizing a ruck march, please contact us BEFORE scheduling your event  to coordinate a time and submit a CONOP.  We will only accept Ruck March donations until 16 NOV. 

Santa's Workshop at the Great Place is run 100% by volunteers, so we need to make sure that there are elves available to receive your generous donations!  We do not have staff who are at the workshop UNLESS it is previously scheduled.
