Christmas Shop at Hope Lutheran Church

Every year, Hope Lutheran Church organizes a Children's Christmas Shop.  This is a program where children ages 4-12 who need a little extra help at Christmas time can come and "shop" for 5 gifts for their family members.  This event has been hosted for over 10 years and has continued to grow each season.  The event is completely free for the children who attend!

Last year we hosted 360 children and some of the changes we implemented really boosted the guest experience.  We expect to see at least 400 children this season as the need in Bozeman continues to grow.

This is a community effort and many area businesses have already donated to help us reach our funding goals.  In order to provide this service for 400 people we need to come up with 2,400 gift items.  This is where you come in!  We need the help of all of our neighbors, family members and friends to raise money to make this event possible.  Gifts cost between $5 and $10 a piece and so a conservative estimate suggests that we need to raise somewhere around 20,000 (or the equivalent in donated items).  

Watch our social media presence as we will also be unveiling a way that you can donate direct gift items to our program as well.
Any little bit will help us to reach our goal...and all monetary donations are 100 percent tax deductible.
If you feel so led, please consider making a donation to this important program in our community .  Thanks!
