For volunteers who are new to the program, “Kinshoppe” is an opportunity for our families to partake in a family tradition that low income families report they are unable to do with their limited income. This is an event for the kids to shop for their siblings, parents or guardians for Christmas presents. They wrap the items and bring them home to place under the tree.
During a season of “Me Me Me” we try to intentionally provide a spirit of giving. Kinshoppe includes many partnerships to make this day a celebration; MN Trucking Association collects and provides the toys and gifts, Churches who provide the facility, volunteers who provided goodies for the day and hundreds of volunteers, many who return year after year because they enjoy helping to bring the experience of “ giving to others” to the kids.
Does this program make an impact? Well as an example, in years past Kinshoppe has hosted 208 kids who shopped and wrapped for approximately 478 siblings and 247 parents or guardians. We were helped with over 105 “Christmas elves” volunteers to make this day happen!
Your help or donation is very much appreciated!
