Children's Christmas Gift Program
In December, we create a festive Christmas gift center filled with new, donated gifts for children, birth to 12 years of age and gift cards for 13-15 year olds. Registered parents choose from a bounty of NEW stuffed animals, toys, clothing and more. In 2013 we were able to provide at least 3 gifts per child to grateful parents of 1046 local children.
In both November and December, customers receive additional holiday food during one of their regular shopping visits. Thanks to generous community support, 680 Thanksgiving and 608 Christmas family meals were distributed in 2013.
School Supply Backpack Program
Each August, we distribute sturdy, new backpacks stuffed with new, grade-level appropriate school supplies for K-12 students. Just in time for a new year of learning! In 2013, 526 children received the packs.
