The Christmas Store is a program organized by our neighbors that provides new toys and gifts at an affordable price for hard working neighborhood families to purchase. You know that there is great dignity for families in selecting and purchasing their own Christmas gifts for their children and family.

Your gift to the Christmas Store is more than the new toy that a child receives. Each one of your donated gifts turns into three gifts for our neighbors: A toy for a child, pride and dignity for their parents, AND jobs for neighborhood youth during the summer work experience. All proceeds from the Christmas Store each year support jobs for youth in the summer. To make a donation during the Christmas season, email us at hnp@communityencompass.org.

Please bring all donations to the Community enCompass office, 19 Hartford by December 11th.

Our Christmas Store is so good, even Santa makes an appearance.

To stock the store, we depend on churches, families, businesses and other organizations to provide new, unopened presents. Christmas Store partners are important to the success of this program as we seek to restore dignity to Christmas for the families we are walking alongside. More info on gift ideas are listed here.

We are excited to partner with you, working together with families in our community for a joyful and meaningful Christmas.
