2017 Christmas Market
Celebrate the Holiday season with Good News Partners at our 6th Annual Christmas Market on Saturday, December 9th from 10am-2pm at Gale Academy located at 1631 W. Jonquil Terrace.
The "Christmas Market" was created to bless children and families with the gifts that so many take for granted, all while giving families the joy of shopping for themselves at prices they can afford.
The store will be stocked with gifts for young and old, from which participants may purchase at a discount from suggested retail prices – either with cash or with “Jingle Bucks” earned through participation in various community activities. To complete the experience, there will be a café where shoppers can relax; enjoy or join in Christmas carols; a gift wrap station; photographers to capture the memories; and perhaps a visit from Santa Claus.
The Christmas Market is more than just shopping. It’s an experience! A participant from our inaugural Christmas Market described their experience as, “One of the best weekends of my life!” Volunteers have shared their delight in helping someone find the perfect gift for a loved one. “Christmas is not a season. Its a feeling,” Edna Ferber said.
We're also looking for volunteers. Able to serve?
To make all this possible, Good News Partners needs the generous support of our congregational and community partners like you. There will be gifts to purchase and sort, cookies to bake, wrapping paper and bows to donate, and payments to be recorded. Many hands are needed to organize and operate the Christmas Market. This is the perfect holiday volunteer opportunity for your congregation, co-workers, team or family. Register to volunteer here: http://signup.com/go/yDHvsko
We hope that the spirit of Christmas will move you to share your time and talents on December 9th. It is guaranteed to be the best Christmas present you’ll receive this season!
