Scott Elementary School Giftmart

Giftmart Volunteers @ Scott Elementary School

The Compass Church, Hobson Campus, is partnering with Giftmart, a re-imagined holiday shop that provides an opportunity for under-resourced families in our community to buy toys for their children in a dignified manner. This year, with your love and assistance, we are creating and hosting a Giftmart at Scott Elementary School for families at Scott, Naper, and Ellsworth Schools. The $2 per gift purchase price will be donated to the school’s education fund.

Team Leaders will contact volunteer teams with specific details at least one week prior to the volunteer opportunity.
