HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

GIVE A GIFT OF HOPE! This year, we want to give hope to our community by providing a Christmas shopping experience for families in need. Parents who attend our Christmas store on December 12th will get to pick out gifts for their children and have them wrapped and carried to their car by our serve team Santa's helpers. In order to make this happen, we need Difference Makers like you to shop for gifts and serve at our event!
