Santa Shoppe Assistance
The Santa Shoppe Assistance Program is one of the most exciting and progressive programs offered by
The Dream Center. This referral-based program allows qualifying parents in need to earn Christmas gifts for their children, instead of depending on organizations that provide gifts through one way giving. Families needing Christmas assistance are referred to The Dream Center by their child’s school. Parents are then required to attend free classes to earn a shopping voucher. Class topics include budgeting, parenting, Bible study, resume writing, health & wellness, healthy relationships & self-esteem. The Dream Center also provides Santa Shoppe credit for attendance at pre-approved school family literacy nights, parent nights or parenting classes offered by Title One schools. Upon completion of required classes, parents make an appointment to shop in
The Dream Center Santa Shoppe.
This beautiful Christmas store is housed in The Dream Center, is staffed by volunteers, and is stocked with popular new toys and gifts which are generously donated by local churches, schools, corporations, and individuals. To complete their Christmas shopping experience, a gift-wrapping area is also provided . At the Santa Shoppe, toys are selected, gifts are wrapped, life stories are shared and relationships are made.
Our Santa Shoppe is in need of new toy and gift donations for this year. If you, your organization, church, school or business would like to donate toys, we would be so grateful.
