‘Tis the Season of giving!
We are getting ready for our 2021 Annual Holiday Store where students in our Youth Education Program can shop for gifts for their parents and siblings…at no cost!
The past year and a half has proved to be more challenging than anyone could imagine. While families have persevered through some of the worst of the pandemic’s effects, those who are most vulnerable still face economic hardship. Subsequent inflation is making it even harder for our families to get what they need, and holiday gifts are not on the list of necessities. Each year, we look forward to providing this experience for the families we serve so that they can enjoy the holiday season together with less stress.
All of the gifts in the Holiday Store are donated by our community of supporters, so we couldn’t do this without your generosity and support! If you would like to donate to the Holiday Store, see below for our wish list and donation drop-off details. Donors are also welcome to purchase from our Holiday Store Amazon Wish List to have items delivered directly to Community Lodgings.
