HOW YOU CAN SHOP

CHRISTMAS STORE

BE A SANTA

Be a part of someone's Christmas miracle! Church groups, individuals, and businesses donate new items such as coats, toys, clothing and blankets all year long to stock the Christmas Store shelves.  Shopping for 3,000 people takes a village! Please consider hanging MLM ornaments on a "giving" tree or downloading our 2017 Wish List for your next shopping trip! All donations must be received by Sunday, December 4th. Call Kelly at 816-285-3141 for more information.
