The Christmas Store!
On December 17th, Marillac St. Vincent was blessed to be able to distribute enough toys for 250 families who signed up over 1,000 children. Parents received a toy for each child on their list, as well as stocking stuffers, sports equipment, games, clothing, and books. Lastly, each family received a large bag of food, enough to make a big meal on Christmas, including a turkey!
We are so grateful to the many, many individuals, churches, businesses, and civic groups who donated thousands upon thousands of toys for these families in needs. And we owe a very big thank you to the over 140 volunteers who came out on an early, chilly December morning to help run the store. It was a wonderful, magical day for these families, and by far, the biggest and best Christmas Store ever!
