The annual Children’s Holiday Store opens Saturday, November 26 in Fairhills Mall, 1919 W. Monroe,

open Thursdays through Sundays, November 26, 2022 through December 18, 2022. Hours for the store are Thursdays and Fridays 4pm to 7pm, Saturdays 9am to 6pm, and Sundays noon to 6pm.

For many families, shopping at the Holiday Store is now an annual tradition. First started in 1989, the

Holiday Store provides a wonderful shopping experience for children, teaching them about the joy of

giving. While parents wait, children shop with a volunteer, following their budget and finding just the

right gift for those special people on their list. Gifts range from $1 to $15. Gifts are wrapped and tagged

by the children and volunteers.


Volunteers,14 years of age or older, are still needed to help at the store. Several hundred volunteers are

needed to staff the Holiday Store. Students can receive community service credit for volunteering.

 Anyone interested in volunteering can sign up here.
