Christmas Store

Many community partners come together to share Christmas joy by hosting the Christmas Store from 9am-noon at the Boys & Girls Club, next door to Harvest Vineyard Church. The store gives parents who are struggling financially the opportunity to shop for their own children by selecting new toys/gifts that will be priced at a great discount. Shoppers will be welcomed by invitation only, and toys/gifts will be purchased and donated by community friends and partners. We love that this is an event that allows everyone to participate and give! We will need 266 volunteers for the Christmas Store. Volunteers must be 16 years or older.
