Children's Holiday Shop

What is the Holiday Shop?

Crisis Nursery's Holiday Shop is the perfect place for children to do their holiday shopping for everyone on their list. All gifts are priced between $2 and $10. Children shop with the help of a community volunteer so their gifts are a surprise for family and friends. When the children are done picking out their gifts, they pay for them and wrap them in shiny festive bags. As they leave the shop, children are always full of pride with the items they have picked out on their own and an understanding that it is just as great to give as it is to receive. 

Enter to win a PlayStation 5!
For just $20, you've got a 1 in 100 shot at winning a brand new PlayStation 5! You do not need to be present to win.
