What is The Christmas Store?
We are partnering with the Life Enrichment Center and Arbor Church to create a special shopping experience for families who may be struggling financially. The store will be filled with donated items that will be sold at very discounted prices to help families in need experience the joy of shopping and selecting gifts for their loved ones.
What ages the ages for the bins and the cost?
• 0-2 girls and boys, minimum cost of $35
• 3-5 girls and boys, minimum cost of $40
• 6-11 girls and boys, minimum bin cost of $40
• 6-11 girls and boys, minimum bin cost of $65 (includes $25 gift card)
• 12-18 girls and boys, minimum bin cost of $40
• 12-18 girls and boys, minimum bin cost of $65 (includes $25 gift card)
What items will be placed in the bins?
We are asking for a $20 contribution towards the cost of the “essentials” (socks, diapers/underwear, blankets, sweatshirts) that have already been purchased in bulk, as well as 1-3 gifts in the age and price range of the bin you selected.
Why are the “essentials” not on the list this year?
To create consistency in sizing and style, we have purchased these items in bulk and are requesting a $20 donation to help offset the cost.
What other ways can I participate if I’m unable to fill a bin?
1.Make a donation, in any amount, to help offset the cost of the “essentials.” Envelopes are available at the Welcome Center.
2.Select an item from our Amazon Christmas Store List, which will be shipped directly to Fairhaven.
3.Sign up to serve at The Christmas Store. This year, the store will be held at Arbor Church, 720 Burkhardt Ave., Dayton 45403.
When should the bins be returned to Fairhaven? Please return your bins by Sunday, November 18. Bins can be dropped off on Sunday morning or brought to the Welcome Center during normal business hours.
