Affordable Christmas is an empowering shopping experience for low income families. This year we will hosting THREE opportunities for families to shop. We will be selling new toys for 1/10th of the retail value! This allows families an opportunity to provide their own Christmas presents for their children at a very low cost. We will also have pictures with Santa Clause, games, and face painting for families.
