Christmas Store

 

Each year at Christmas, the Board of Child Care Auxiliary sets up a Christmas Store for the children served by the Board of Child Care.   The store stocks new and like new merchandise so each child has an opportunity to select Christmas gifts for the important people in their life.  Even though the children may not live with their parents and siblings during the holiday, giving them Christmas gifts is very important to them.

If you would like to volunteer at any of the events, donate any requested items, or have questions, please contact Sue Everhart, Auxiliary President by phone at 301-514-8730 or everhartsuzanne@gmail.com 

**Exciting changes will take place with the 2020 Christmas Store.  Watch for details in your email and on this page.**

Items Needed for the Christmas Stores

We ask that you donate items that you would give as gifts to your own children or grandchildren.
