We are so excited about IPM’s Christmas program! As you know, this is one of our biggest events of the year, and we are thrilled to announce the expansion of IPM’s Toy Store. But we need your help to make a special Christmas possible for our neighbors in need!
 
Who: 420 Pre-registered families in need.
 
What: This year we will offer two stores –
  • “Santa’s Toy Store” hosts caregivers shopping for children.
  • “Santa’s Gifts For Grown-Ups Store” gives children a chance to shop for caregivers. Seniors may also shop for a special gift for themselves or a loved one.
 
Why: The expanded Christmas Store empowers caregivers and allows them to be a hero. They get to pick out and pay for the gifts their children want and enjoy a complete holiday experience.
 
There’s Even MORE: During the Christmas Store families can visit with Santa, enjoy a hot drink and take in the festive sounds of carolers. Holiday food boxes will also be provided.
 
Goal: IPM wants every family to have a festive and happy holiday and hopes to share joy with our neighbors in need.
 
Needs: The Christmas store will host both children and adults, which will require a lot of volunteers as well as a lot of gifts:
 
  • Volunteer Opportunities:
  • Toy Store Set-Up
  • Check-In
  • Shopping Support
  • Toy Staging
  • Parking Lot Navigators and Gift Carriers
  • Gift Wrapping
  • Volunteer Hospitality
  • Provide Large Black Garbage Bags
  • Donate Gifts and Toys:
    • Toys and Gifts for children 0-12
    • High Need: Toys and gifts for children 13-18
    • Extremely High Need: Gifts for adults and seniors
 
Below is a wish list that has gift ideas for each of the age categories. IPM also has an Amazon Wish List available online.
 
Gifts can be dropped off on December 8 and 9 at Crossroads East Side Church between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. If this time is inconvenient, please reach out to Nicole Gordon at nicole@interparish.org to arrange another time. Any questions can also be directed to Nicole.
 
We SO APPRECIATE all of your support and look forward to sharing the joy of giving this Christmas season.
