Welcome to the website for the Summerfield Christmas Store! We invite you to look around and learn all there is to know about this wonderful event.
The first thing you’re probably wondering is…
What is the Summerfield Christmas Store?
Well, it’s a festively decorated Christmas “store” where parents who need help providing Christmas gifts for their children can come and shop for presents for them. It’s open one day each year, normally the first or second Saturday in December.
Who do we serve?
Local families who have been screened and selected by an application process based on need. Unfortunately, there is no way to apply to attend the store unless you received an application.
Here’s how it will work…
Participating families will be assigned a designated time to come to the store. When they first arrive, they will be given the opportunity to have family portraits taken courtesy of Charles Lee Photography. These portraits will be printed and available for families to take home to enjoy. Then their children will be taken to an area to enjoy a fun time of crafts, music and story time. They will also be served a meal.
Parents will be partnered with a personal shopper who will assist them as they shop. Each family will receive the following for each child in their family:
* Pair of Jeans
* Sweater or Sweatshirt
* Coat or Hoodie (warm bunting or one-piece for infants)
* Stuffed Animal (children 2 and under)
* Toy (kids 13 and older will receive a $25 gift card)
Parents will select one item from each of the categories above, which will then be gift-wrapped while they enjoy refreshments. A separate space will be available for prayer, if desired. And finally, one of our Reindeer Runners will help parents put the gifts in their car and go with them to pick up their children. This entire process shouldn’t take more than an hour and a half and is filled with many opportunities for fellowship, fun and laughter.
