On December 15, the efforts and generosity of numerous donors and volunteers came to fruition. As a result, more than 1,000 children awoke on Christmas morning to new toys and clothes under their trees.
The Santa Shop is only possible because of the hard work of volunteers that sort, shop with the parents, and wrap the presents. Gifts are donated by area businesses, schools, and parish conferences participating in our Gifts from the Heart tree program,as well as individuals that shop our Amazon wish list. Toys for Tots also supplies boxes and boxes of toys.
“Every year, Santa Shop puts a smile on everyone’s face at St. Vincent de Paul Louisville. More importantly, we see the smiles of the parents who have an opportunity to shop for their children and the volunteers that help make this day so special,” says Donna Young, Director of Volunteer Services and Conference Affairs.
Thank you to everyone that made Santa Shop a success this year.
