    Sinterklaas will arrive in Zoetermeer on Saturday 19 November. At various places in Zoetermeer…

    Toy bank Zoetermeer

    In Zoetermeer there is not only a food bank, but also a toy bank. Zoetermeer residents can come by to pick up free toys. Toy bank IKROS in Zoetermeer offers children up to the age of 8 a free shoe gift box filled with a gift and a treat. Good to know: you have to register before you can pick up your first (Sinterklaas) present.

    Sintvoorieder Foundation1

    At Stichting Sintvoorieder1, volunteers are ready to make a Sinterklaas package for children in poverty. Of course not every young Zoetermeer receives the same package; it looks at age, gender and more.

    The gift packages from Stichting Sintvoorieder1 are only available to Zoetermeer residents who are registered with the food bank.
