Family Gift Market

The Family Gift Market is a free event and unique opportunity for single parents and their children to shop for one another at Christmas! Our team of volunteers play the role of shopping assistant helping kiddos select, wrap, and label a gift for their registered parent, while parents shop in an adjacent room selecting a gift for each one of their children. Cookies, crafts, and cocoa are available for families to enjoy together when their shopping is done, and all leave with a wrapped gift for one another to be put under the tree for Christmas.

To ensure we have enough items for all of the attending families, registration is required and a limited number of spaces are available. To attend, click the link to the right when registration opens at noon on Tuesday, December 17, select from the available shopping times (1:00, 2:00, 2:45, 3:30, or 4:15), and complete the required fields. The shopping rooms will be restocked before each time slot, so each shopping time has a wonderful variety of items to choose from. We suggest arriving 10 minutes prior to your shopping time.

If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please visit our Volunteer Page to register. Thank you!
