2020 Christmas Store
Share the joy of Christmas by serving at the Christmas Store where families will purchase new gifts for $1, $3, $5, $10, taking stress out of the holiday season.
Most of the families who will be assisted through the Christmas Store are working people who simply cannot absorb the added expenses of the holiday season. Gifts, big meals, traveling to see friends and relatives… even a Christmas tree can be an extravagance they can’t afford.
Families who are served by the ministries at Christian Resource Center.
Parents, please register by December 1, 2020 with your Ministry Leadership Team.
The ministries include: ACTS of Love, CARS, Christian Family Counseling Service, Career Life Ministry, Faith Home Restoration, Jail to Jobs, Job Seekers Network, Life Bridge Job Corps, Reveal Resource Center and Trotter House.
Parents should bring: an ID to confirm registration from the ministry that they are served by through the CRC.
What will happen at the Christmas Store?
We’ve changed things up a bit this year to help keep everyone safe & healthy. We’re offering a drive-through store – with welcome team, music, holiday treats and more!
Parents will select gifts for their children in advance – up to 3 gifts per child – via a catalog (corresponding to gifts designated on the Amazon Wish List). Each gift will be priced at $1, $3, $5 or $10. Once toys selections are made and donations have been received, volunteers will gather each family’s items for the family to purchase and pick up on December 12th.
Toys are donated by CRC supporting churches, member ministries and local businesses. New toys for infrants to teenagers are needed. We'd love to have all monetary and toy donations as early as possible this year – ideally in November, but no later than December 6th.
Toys can be purchased through our AMAZON WISH LIST. When you shop through the Amazon Wish List you won't have to worry about dropping off the toys because they are shipped directly to us! If you need to schedule a drop-off time, please contact Michelle Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the money received through the Christmas Store purchases will go into an education scholarship fund used to assist families in need at the CRC.
We plan to have a fun day of serving CRC families! At the same time, we'll practice social distancing and masks are required for all volunteers. Thank you for serving with us!
