What is Tree of Lights Christmas Store?
Mission: Possible! Austin will have the Tree of Lights Christmas Store for families in our programs. At this event, low-income families that receive a voucher from our programs will have the opportunity to purchase new Christmas toys for their children at an 80% discounted price from the retail price. This will allow parents the dignity of shopping for and purchasing their kid’s toys themselves. Donations of new toys (unwrapped with original price tag still on it) will be collected late October-early December.
2017 Highlights: 35 families shopped and 100+ children received toys!
Current needs for 2018:
- Funds for the purchase of new toys
- Volunteers to help shoppers or gift wrap
- Churches and businesses are needed as additional toy drop-off sites
Examples of needed toys: teen jewelry/ cosmetics/ accessories, toddler riding toys, dolls and accessories, sports balls/games, baby interactive toys.
