COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS SHOPPE
THE LARGEST TOY GIVEAWAY IN VENTURA COUNTY.
Thank you for serving your local community! We’ve just wrapped up two back to back weekends of serving under-resourced children and families in Ventura County- and we could not have done it without you. A total of 1,330 volunteers showed up to help families select toys, take family photos and take comfort in prayer. Overall, 72 Churches, 52 businesses and 91 community partners came together to donate toys, food, and clothing to make 2019 Community Christmas Shoppe a blessing to those in need.
HOW IT WORKS:
|Every year, 2,000 families are served through a Community Christmas Shoppe. Families are given tickets to attend through local social service agencies and churches.|
|Nearly 15,000 gifts are given away each year through Community Christmas Shoppe, making it the largest toy giveaway in Ventura County. Parents can shop for their child's preferred gift, with a selection of items ranging from bicycles to books!|
|Hundreds of volunteers come together to make this a fun and festive event for the families we serve! Volunteers assist with everything from helping our families select gifts, gift wrapping and more.|
|Six Christmas Shoppe are held throughout Ventura County. Conejo Valley, Simi Valley, Ventura and Oxnard host shoppes for the community, while Westlake Village hosts a shoppe for children with disabilities and Camarillo holds a Military shoppe.|
|Our mission is to provide families with a community of support that will outlast the holiday season. Families are assisted by volunteers that get to know them, pray with them, and help them connect to a church or a social service agency.|
|There are many ways to get involved with Community Christmas Shoppe. Join a shoppe leadership team, host a toy box at your church, school or business, become a financial sponsor, or sign up to volunteer!|
