Good Tidings Christmas Store

What is the Good Tidings Christmas Store? A Holiday gift store that helps families in the Hilliard School District, who could not otherwise afford gifts for their children this holiday season.

What is the Purpose? To give parents and guardians with limited income a way to Christmas shop for the children in their lives at a VERY low cost, in a very respect-filled way. It is our goal to provide NEW toys at drastically reduced prices for children 1-18yrs.

How can YOU get involved?  Buy toys to donate then  VOLUNTEER (adults and teens) to run the store.  For all the details click here.
