Holiday Super Store 2015

Starts:     Nov 23, 2015 @ 8 a.m.   Ends:     @  
Time to start Christmas shopping for the children of Charlie Thomas Head Start Center. This event is a favorite for many of you who know the joy it brings to buy toys and clothes for children at Christmas time. Holiday Superstore is one of the favorite outreach programs sponsored by Opening Doors. The program is based on a point system that rewards parents for volunteering at their child’s school. Our shopping this year will take place on Monday, November 23 (the Monday before Thanksgiving) at the Target store on Siegen, beginning at 8 a.m.

The procedure is a simple one. You are given a child’s name, a wish list of toys/clothes the child desires and the amount of money you can spend for the gifts. Your job is to do your best to buy some of the things the child wants with the amount of money the parent has earned for his or her child.

Most folks prefer to shop with a partner. You may want to buddy up with a family member, a neighbor or anyone who enjoys Christmas time! Usually everyone has finished by 10:30 a.m. so the toys are then brought to the church to be organized and bagged. If you cannot shop at that time, we will need volunteers to be at the church around 10:30 a.m. to help with the sorting of gifts. 

If you can help in either or both ways this year, please respond to Bobbi Marino by text 205-5530 or e-mail to bobbimarino@hotmail.com by Thursday, November 19. If you want to sign up with a partner, please send the two names in together. 
  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
