Holiday Shop 2013

Posted by: Jessica Malovic

Last Monday, December 9th, was our 2nd Annual Holiday Shop where St. Lawrence Place residents selected one educational gift and one fun gift for each of their children.  Adults can also choose a gift for themselves, and leave the event with a basket full of cleaning supplies.  It is amazing to see the overwhelming support of our community come together to provide gifts for our residents.

This event would not exist without the support from groups like Eastminster Presbyterian Church, Trenholm Road United Methodist Church, Sales & Marketing Council of the Home Builders Association, KD’s Treehouse, St. Martin’s In the Field Episcopal Church, North Trenholm Baptist Church, and countless others.

Volunteers were on-site to help residents select gifts, wrap them and gather their gifts to go home.

We would like to send a special thank you to Arbra and Pastor Lewis of First Calvary Baptist Church for hosting the Holiday Shop and dinner this year. From setting up the shop, to preparing the food, to Santa pictures, to donating gifts; your congregation was wonderful to work with and we appreciate all the hard work that goes into making this day so special.
