A selection of gifts donated in 2015

The Christmas Store is a program organized by our neighbors that offer new, deeply discounted toys and gifts for hard-working neighborhood families.

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. All proceeds from the Christmas Store support summer jobs for our YEPs. To make a donation during the Christmas season, email Charlotte Johnson 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 need YOU! Churches, families and individuals, businesses and other organizations donate new, unopened presents each year. YOU are important to the success of this program as we seek to maintain and build dignity for neighborhood families who are struggling financially, and desire to provide for their children. More info on gift ideas are listed below.

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