Operating during November and December each year, our Christmas Store allows parents who need assistance to sign up for a personal shopping time and come pick out a gift to give their child (infants through high school). Our volunteers work to make sure there is a selection of age-appropriate gifts for parents to choose from, so each family leaves with a gift their child will be thrilled to receive.
There are many ways that individuals and families can get involved with the Christmas Store. Lots and lots of gifts are needed to make this event a success, so volunteers are encouraged to provide gifts for children of all ages. We also need volunteers to shop for gifts, provide refreshments for the shoppers, to work the registration lines, and to assist shoppers, to name a few. We encourage financial donations, as well. Our shoppers have developed relationships with area stores and are able to get gifts for discounted prices, so financial donations really go a long way in getting gifts for this program. If you would like to make a financial donation, please click the Give Online button and select "Christmas Store" from the drop down menu. Financial donations are tax deductible.
Families in our community who need help during the Christmas season register for an assigned shopping time and date. Registration begins in mid-November and is on a first come, first served basis. Check back for more details about registration. The Christmas Store is available for the following zip codes: 75001, 75006, 75007, 75008, 75010, 75019, 75244, and 75287.
