Christmas Shoppe Reimagined for 2020

Updated: Sep 29, 2020

Unfortunately, we will not be able to assist individuals or families that are not preregistered and referred for these specific events. As in the past, participants are referred by outside social agencies. The Church is unable to accept call-in registrations for these events.

Please see our Community Meals site for information regarding free community meals that require no reservations or referrals.

It’s only summer but we are already thinking about how to best serve our community for the coming Fall and Winter holidays.

Because we anticipate an on-going and worsening need for food and basic necessities this year, we will not offer the traditional X-Mas Shoppe experience. Instead, we will be having two enhanced drive-thru events. We plan to serve 50 different families at each drive thru.

In November, we will have Thanksgiving themed food and paper product/hygiene baskets, coats or shoes or blanket for each child (family picks) and other yet to be decided items.

In December, we will have the same offerings (Christmas themed), a small selection of toys and games and other yet to be determined items.
