CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS SHOPPE
Created for children to help children!
Each year, on the second Saturday of December, children between the ages of 3 and 12 can purchase gifts for $3.00 with the help of an "elf" and have them wrapped for a surprise on Christmas morning. There are gifts for moms, dads, grandparents, siblings, teachers, and even the family pet.
Children in all walks of life benefit from your donations. The donations we receive are used to purchase the gifts that we sell at the Christmas Shoppe. The proceeds from the shoppe are used to benefit many local children's charities, including:
Children's Museum of Virginia
Edmarc Hospice for Children
Help and Emergency Response [HER] Shelter for Domestic Violence
Oasis Social Ministry
Portsmouth Area Resources Coalition (PARC)
Portsmouth Police Department and Safety Town
The Child Nutrition Program at the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia
Wesley Community Service Center, Inc.
If you wish to contribute to this ministry, in any way, you are invited to contact the standing committee for Missions & Outreach.
The Christmas Shoppe is open on Saturday, December 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday, December 11 from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. (There is no gift-wrapping on Sunday.) Please join us!
