Please Help Make a Difference! CHRISTMAS GIFT SHOP for FOOD PANTRY CLIENTS Every December “Be the living expression of God’s love…” Mother Teresa
The second Saturday of each December, we open our doors and hearts to brighten the lives of those we serve, providing them a chance to select Christmas gifts for their families. It takes close to 150 volunteers to make the Gift Shop happen. Those who have volunteered in the past will tell you how meaningful it was to be a part of this effort. There are so many ways to volunteer:
*Donate new and gently used items (see below) *Help sort donations *Help set up the Gift Shop *Help “sell” and wrap gifts at the Gift Shop *Provide childcare on the playground for the shoppers’ children.
Gift and donation suggestions:
Christmas decorations or holiday items that you no longer use
Toys and children’s books that are new or clean and gently used
Cookware, small appliances, CDs, radios (all clean and working)
Coats, jackets, sweaters or shirts, sweat shirts, fleece new or gently used, folded in “gift condition” (No sport jackets or ties)
