New Life Christian Church
Christmas is a time of giving and sharing, and while lots of organizations provide gifts for needy kids each year, the children aren’t able to experience the joy of giving and selecting gifts for their parents and loved ones. New Life's Christmas Shop gives kids the opportunity to "shop" (for free) for Christmas presents to give the special adults in their homes...and YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS of NEW gifts valued at $10 make that possible. We invite children (under age 18) from the Meadows Community to “shop” for gifts for their parents or caregivers and all of the items are FREE. Volunteer elves greet families and take children through our “store” of donated NEW items to select the perfect gifts for their loved ones. Then wrappers help them choose paper, bags, ribbons and gift tags, and wrap the gifts so they stay a special surprise until Christmas morning. Santa makes a special appearance during the event, and adults enjoy light refreshments and entertainment as they wait with anticipation for their shoppers to return. Each family takes home a platter of home-made cookies and treats made with the loving hands of volunteers. How will you be part of this event? Sign up today to donate gifts, bake cookies, or volunteer during the event.
