Our 2022 Christmas Store
In order to preserve the pride of parents and guardians and not to engage in toxic charity, we created what we call the Community Christmas Store. The new toys that are donated from our church partners are reduced to 20% of the retail cost from Walmart or Amazon and each parent/guardian is allowed to purchase 2 gifts per child. In addition, we offer free wrapping of the gifts and refreshments are served in an inviting environment. We also have an area set up for prayer upon request.
With your donation we will be able to bless many more families in a community where approximately 34 percent of the population lives below the federal poverty standard and over 60% of the children are raised by single moms, grandparents or a guardian.
What we ask from our donors is to leave the sale sticker on the item or to leave the sales slip taped to the it. If you would like to help us with pricing, please mark the items at 20% of what your retail cost is.
Our 2022 Christmas Store will take place on December 10, 2022 from 9am until all the toys are sold. Toys will be collected from Nov 28th to Dec 7th and can be drop off at the NOC from 10 to 2.
