Christmas Kids’ Shoppe to open

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Messiah Lutheran Ministries will hold its community-wide Christmas Kids’ Shoppe on two Saturdays, Dec. 1 and Dec. 8, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. The Shoppe is located in the basement of the church on the corner of 19th and Adams in Red Lodge.

Any child age 4-11 from Carbon County may shop for Christmas gifts for family members totally free of charge. Each child will receive one shopping ticket entitling him or her to select up to five gifts at the Shoppe. Shopping tickets are being distributed through the schools, day care agencies, and the Boys' and Girls' Club, and will also be available during the Shoppe’s hours. Only children will be admitted to the Shoppe. While personal shoppers help the children select gifts, family members or friends who are waiting for them can enjoy refreshments upstairs.

The Christmas Kids’ Shoppe is a free gift to the community and its children from Messiah Lutheran Ministries and the very generous merchants, service organizations, and private citizens of our community who donate many gift items. If you would like to donate gifts, please call the numbers shown below. Especially needed are items for men and boys.

There is absolutely no obligation, and no money will change hands. If you need more information or wish to donate items, please contact Jeri (446-3323) or Barb (446-4121).
