Imagine being a parent and not having the resources to provide gifts for your child at Christmas…the inability to choose, purchase, and wrap gifts can be overwhelming if you have limited funds. It can be a choice between keeping the electric on or providing gifts. Or, being a foster parent and a new child that walks through the door without clothes, suitcase, or anything else.
At Life Community Center, our unique program partners with parents to create Christmas miracles. Parents are asked to donate their time to local nonprofits, schools, and churches time in exchange for an opportunity to shop at our Imagine Christmas store. Though they may not have financial funds, we believe their time and effort are still valuable to the community. After they complete the time-exchange, they receive an appointment to shop for 3 gifts/gift cards per child. Our Santa workshop includes gift wrap and batteries. Foster families are not required to participate in time exchange due to their volunteer role as a foster parent.
How can you help?

The deadline for giving is Friday, November 27, 2020.
