Due to COVID-19, the shopping experience we had provided to so many families for the past 50+ years changed significantly. Last year, our shop was moved outdoors, where our families and volunteers braved frigid temperatures. Our shoppers received gift cards, housewares, toys and stocking stuffers for their families. In total, we served over 500 families (over 1,300 individuals) in our community! Due to the ongoing pandemic we are using the same format we did last year.
We hope Santa Claus Shop will be back in our traditional setting next year, but what we've all discovered in 2020 is that the spirit of the Shop is alive and well!
