From December 5-14, 472 families joined us in our ‘winter wonderland’ to select gifts, stocking stuffers, books, hats & gloves, and blankets for all of the children ages 18 and under in their homes. Through this event, 1,349 children experienced the magic of the holiday season.  

This year’s Holiday Shop was made possible by the hands of 269 volunteers providing 1,266 hours of service!  Volunteers decked out in jingle bells, reindeer antlers, and Christmas lights registered parents & guardians for their shopping appointments, acted as personal shoppers, and kept our shelves stocked full of items to choose from.
