Community Impact GiftMart 2019

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.

Giftmart Co-Director: Katie Minott [email protected]
