On Monday, December 8th, we will hold the 3rd Annual Holiday Shop for the residents of St. Lawrence Place. Members of local churches, numerous organizations and individuals will come together to ensure Christmas is as special for the families of SLP as it for yours. While all of our adults are working, the extra expense of gifts, meals and extras at the Holidays can be a burden for them.

At the Holiday Shop each parent will select one educational item and one fun item for each child, as well as one item for themselves. Once gifts are selected, volunteers will be on hand to wrap gifts and get them bagged up to go home. After the shopping is done, our residents will enjoy a night of fellowship, food and pictures with Santa!

In 2011 Mary King and WIS TV showcased our Holiday Shop. Click the link below to see the story.
