Christmas Store: December 8, 2018
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 2017 store served 397 families who shopped for 933 children at this annual event. Without the Christmas Store, many families would be unable to purchase new gifts for their children.
Shop for Gifts
400+ volunteers make the store a reality each year. Individuals, groups and families are invited to participate in the days and weeks leading up to the event and at the store itself.
