Parents and guardians facing hardship can get toys for their children for free at the Action Center’s holiday gift shop.
The gift shop will be open from Monday, Dec. 9 to Saturday, Dec. 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Rock Community Church, 12472 W. Belleview Ave., Littleton.
Each year, the Action Center’s shop welcomes several hundred families who want to provide their children with toys, books and stocking stuffers. The 47-year-old tradition ensures that children in need have a good holiday.
The holiday gift shop is set up much like a big toy store and allows parents or guardians to choose the gifts that their children have high on their wish lists. Designed to help alleviate the financial pressure many families face during the holiday season, the program reassures families facing hardship are able to provide gifts to their children.
“Through the holiday gift shop the Action Center helps families in our community by reducing the stress and financial burden of the holiday season,” Executive Director Pam Brier said in a news release. “We are here to ease that burden and bring needed joy to children in our community.”
The Action Center is still in need of several thousand gifts for the gift shop. Some of the most needed items include remote control cars and trucks, skateboards, scooters, science kits, arts and crafts kits, and nail and makeup kits. Donations can be purchased online at https://www.roonga.com/holidayshopactioncenter.
