GRACE Christmas Cottage - Help Families Shop!

GRACE Christmas Cottage

Help a family shop for Christmas gifts

December 19th

2:30pm-5:00pm

Volunteers must be 18 or older!

 

Sign up to help a GRACE family shop for gifts at the Christmas Cottage.  We need 10 volunteers.  Volunteers must be 18 or older.

The Christmas Cottage is a program from GRACE that provides families with Christmas gifts for their family at no cost to them. What makes the program unique is that they allow their clients to make their own selections of gifts for their family. Each family is given a budget based on their family size.

They "shop" in the cottage among age appropriate items that are given a dollar value that is approximate to Walmart. This way, they not only get to choose the gifts that they know their children will like, but they are learning to budget and understand the value of what they are being given. It really helps the parents maintain a sense of dignity since they are able to maintain a level of privacy.
