Since 1995, New Image has sponsored the Children’s Christmas Store, realizing that without the toys, gifts, shoes, and supermarket gift cards provided by this program, several homeless and low-low income families with children, would not be able to celebrate the holidays. Homelessness is a traumatic experience for a child, especially experiencing homeless during the holidays because they often feel disconnected from their homes, family, friends, and the broader community. Therefore, New Image works hard to make this, a day they will never forget.
This holiday season help us provide another loving, fun-filled, memorable Christmas to the children of homeless and low-income families, who without your help, would struggle to have a Christmas dinner, and provide gifts to their children. It is our goal to serve a minimum of 680 families and over 1,800 children this year.
New Image is requesting your financial and/or in-kind support to ensure toys and a pair of shoes for every child attending the New Image 24th Annual Children’s Christmas Store.
