Santa Shoppe 2017
Every year, we collect new, unopened and unwrapped toys/gifts for children up to age 15 so our clients can provide gifts to give to their children for Christmas. These toys and gifts are then put in our Santa Shoppe where our clients are allowed to shop for free! Some of these children have never had a real Christmas experience, let alone received gifts from their mothers, so it is our goal to provide these women the opportunity to give their children the best Christmas ever! However, we cannot do this alone! We rely on the generocity of our community to hold toy drives through their work, school, church, neighborhood, small group, book club, etc. We understand this may not be possible for some, so even if you can donate one gift, know that you have made a very large impact in a child's life. Below you will find a "wish list" that reflects toys and gift ideas for different age groups. You do not need to stick to this list, however; this is meant to be used as a guide with suggestions.
Last year's (2016) Christmas was our most successful year to date; because of your abundant love and generocity, we were able to provide 5-6 toys/gifts to each child, and gave to almost 1,000 children! This includes the children belonging to the women in our program, as well as to children of families within our community. Please prayerfully consider helping us give even more this year!
