CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS BAZAAR
Children love the excitement of purchasing and wrapping gifts for loved ones and keeping the surprise until Christmas! The 10th Annual Material Girls Children’s Christmas Bazaar during Hometown Holidays is designed to provide this experience, and help children (ages 3 yrs-6th grade) understand that meaningful gifts don’t need to cost a lot of money. All items are handcrafted by the members of the Material Girls, and each costs $1 - $5. All profits will be given to Faith-in-Action to support families during the holiday season and into the New Year.
At the Bazaar, parents and caregivers complete shopping envelopes so children know whom to shop for and how much they can spend. Then youth from the community help children select, wrap, and pay for gifts. Space is limited. To reserve a 30 minute shopping appointment for your child (age 3yrs-6th grade only please) at the 2019 Bazaar, the Sign Up Genius link is HERE
This year, an early shopping session of the bazaar will be offered on Thursday, December 5 from 5 - 8 pm, for children and adults who would benefit from a quieter shopping experience. Several adults and teenagers will serve as greeters, wrapping helpers and cashiers, and we hope to make this a special evening for shoppers and their families and caregivers. Your shopper can choose to have a shopping buddy or have a family member or caregiver help them out with their shopping.
If you would like to register a shopper for this event sign up Here (siblings are welcome to shop at the same time), select an open shopping appointment time and enter your shopper’s name and age. If you will be bringing siblings, please also list their names and ages in the same slot. You only need one slot per family. We are able to accommodate 6 families during each half hour shopping session.If you have a youth 6th grade or older that would like to volunteer that day and be a shopping buddy with the kids doing the shopping, you can find the Sign Up HERE
If you are an adult that would like to volunteer to help that day you can find the Sign Up link HERE
