North Church will be working with Trinity Church this year to partner with Empower North County to serve North County families this Christmas season. You may remember last year we did this and it was a huge success. We have connected with several families in the schools that our community groups partner with as well as one family that participated last year. We have invited them to come and participate in the store this year. The store will be open Thursday evening December 10 and Saturday December 12.
How it works:
A family comes in to shop at the AC store. The families have been personally invited by us and they have communicated age and sex of their children. They will browse the store with a North Church or Trinity “personal shopper” and purchase gifts from the store for their children. All the gifts that will be available will cost the family 10% of the actual cost of the item.
The parents will then take their gifts into our “wrapping station” and wrap the gifts that they have selected for their children. Once they have wrapped the gifts, they load up their cars and head home.
How you can help:
You can volunteer to help any number of ways here. You can also give money to purchase gifts or you can purchase gifts yourself to make available at the store. Please sign up soon so that we can have a handle on our needs.
