SHOPPING 4 OTHERS: “YOU” made the Difference!

Shopping 4 Others remains a perfect way for our kids to experience Christ’s unconditional love…His goodness and His kindness through you. It was an amazing event and this special evening happened because you gave your time, your heart and your resources. “Shopping For Others is such a wonderful opportunity to experience Christmas through the eyes of a child. I felt truly blessed to have been a small part of the meaningful work Coalition is doing in the lives of these precious children.”~ Jennifer, volunteer shopper With the help of over 150 volunteers & staff, we were able to take 131 deserving kids Christmas shopping, not only for themselves, but they were able to pick out a gift for a loved one. “Steven had one particular toy he was really hoping to find. When he couldn’t find it, he got a little down…but with help from other Coalition shoppers, they found one & brought it to him…he was SO DELIGHTED! Seeing kid’s eyes light up like that makes it all worth it!” ~Julie, volunteer shopper Again, we are SO THANKFUL you helped make Christmas special for our Coalition kids! What a blessing we each received in seeing the wonder and excitement on the faces of our kids as they experienced the joy of Christmas…priceless! For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  ~Matthew 6:21~ “I am always so blessed by this evening with the kids and it always seems to be the one event to really put me in the Christmas spirit.  I was touched this year by Gabriella’s generosity buying not one but three gifts for...

An Example of Giving

We all know that Christmas is more than the gifts we receive…it’s about GIVING. God, the Father, gave us His Son….Jesus gave the ultimate gift, His life, so we could know our Father. With SHOPPING 4 OTHERS, you have an opportunity to not just “tell” these kids that giving is important, but to actually “SHOW” them! You get to take them by the hand, walk them through the store aisles, and let them know how much they are loved! You get to show them that they are important…important enough that you took time away from your own family to be a friend to them that night. Your’s is an example of selfless giving: of your time, your resources, and your LOVE! There is still time to register for SHOPPING 4 OTHERS. Find out how…CLICK...
