The Happy Factory is a ministry of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of Oxnard dedicated to providing toys to children in need around the world.
Our Goal is to spread some Christmas cheer to children who may not receive gifts this year.
What We Do
The Happy Factory “takes scrap wood that could have been wasted ……mixes it with spare time that could be wasted …… and turns it into a toy that triggers the imagination so that a little mind won’t be wasted.
How You Can Help
We need your help. There are several ways you can be involved in bringing the gift of a toy a child in need.
• Make a onetime donation. We need to buy wheels, axles. Any amount is helpful. A $2.50 donation can build one toy!
• Volunteer regularly at St. Paul’s Happy Factory! Do you love working with your hands? We need busy hands to cut, sand, and finish the toys.
Become a “Regular”
Anyone is qualified to trace patterns, glue wood, assemble axles and wheels. We need people over 18 to operate the equipment such as saws and routers. If you have a little spare time, please become part of our team.

Make a donation.
We need to buy wheels, axles, and finishing materials. At a cost of $2.50 cents to make each toy, for just a small donation, you can make a difference in a child’s life making it possible for them to receive a hand-crafted wooden toy, made with loving care by our volunteers.
