The following outreaches are repeated seasonally each year.
What: Donated gifts set up in a store-like atmosphere allow local families to shop for gifts for their families. All items are priced between $1 and $5 which allows for shoppers to purchase gifts at a very reduced cost while maintaining dignity and self-worth.
When: On a Saturday in December
Where: Highland Center Gym, 520 Olive St., Shreveport
Ministry: Providing gift items, helping set up the "store," being a personal shopper or gift wrapper on shopping day all help to make this a day of fun, community and sharing in the giving spirit of Christmas.
