Holiday Shopping Fundraiser

The holidays will be here before you know it and we want to put smiles on the faces of kids in our community that might not otherwise have a bright holiday. We’re doing a Holiday Shopping event where parents and guardians can come and select gift items like stocking stuffers or toys for each of their kiddos. We’re also collecting food that we don’t normally carry regularly. We’re estimating at least 500 kids will be shopped for, so the need is very real!

We’ll be collecting now through December 10th, with shopping dates for our patrons the week of December 17th.
