Ctk Christmas Store

The Christmas Store

Christ the King Church is pleased to announce our involvement in a Christmas Store. City Gospel Mission is partnering with us to make this happen. Here’s how the Christmas Store works. Several area church partners distribute registration forms to parents they know need help. Parents are assigned a set shopping time. They pay a low, per child fee to shop, then can select one new toy item ($15 to $40 value) and one new clothing item ($20 to $50 value) for each child, and wrap their gifts there. Each year, about 350 parents from around the city shop for over 1000 children at the store.

The Christmas Store will be held December 12-15, 2012 at Philippus United Church of Christ, 106 W. McMicken, Over-The-Rhine. Here’s where you come in.

We need donations of new toys ($15-$40 value), new upper-body clothing ($20-$50 value), and cash (to purchase gifts and supplies that are not donated).  Donations should be dropped off at Ctk Church, 333 Warner Street, 45219, by Dec. 9th, 2012.

Shopping Guide

Please select items from the list below. All items must be brand new. The children’s parents will be shopping for the items, so wrapping your donation is not necessary.  Make sure to label your donations with the age & gender of child for whom those items would be appropriate.

You can obtain a printable shopping list here.
