Did You Know?

There are hard working families in our community who live at or below the national poverty line? Many of these families are holding down multiple jobs just to pay the bills. Christmas should be a time of joy, but these families are burdened with the thought of not being able to do what every parent wants to do – provide a personal Christmas experience for their children.

The Christmas Shop is a nationally recognized program that works with local schools to identify and invite qualified families to shop in their community where they can select and purchase new and desirable toys at 70-90% off their retail prices. The program advocates for parent involvement and seeks to break, not contribute to, patterns that keep families trapped in poverty cycles. All proceeds are donated back to the participating school Social Workers to provide additional year-round support to children in need.

Provide Christmas Joy to Underserved

We are seeking individuals and corporations who share our vision of making a difference in the lives of others. By adopting a shop, you will help to create an affordable shopping event for parents and a magical experience for the whole family. While parents are shopping and having their gifts wrapped, their children will have the opportunity to meet Santa, play games and participate in making holiday crafts. Your generosity provides these families a sense of dignity, love, and connection with their neighbors.

Your contributions will directly impact the lives of underserved families by:
