Christmas Store: December 10, 2016
The Christmas Store is a special one-day event held each December for families living near the Outreach Community Center in Carol Stream. Qualifying families can affordably shop for Christmas gifts for their children – at a savings of 75% off retail price. This is a win-win! Purchasing affordable gifts honors parents and grandparents, while proceeds from the Store are designated to Outreach Community Center’s case management services, which helps families throughout the year who need financial assistance.
The 2016 store served 366 families who shopped for 995 children at this annual event. Without the Christmas Store, many families would be unable to purchase new gifts for their children.
