Friends, Family, Food, Parties, Presents, Laughter and Joy are what most people think about, when they think about the Holidays. Parents smiling as they watch their children's excitement as they open their gifts and families laughing as they gather around the table to celebrate another Holiday together. The memories we look back on and the memories we will create are something to cherish.
Now, what if the Holidays meant something different to you? What if you were scraping pennies just to put food on the table and you were upset that you didn't have the money to get your children gifts? This is where the Redford Jaycees Children's Christmas Shopping Tour helps out. We like to give back to our community and help some families in need. We want to bring the party, laughter and gifts to families in our community.
What happens during this event? We take the children shopping so they can purchase items for each member in their family so they can feel the joy of giving during the holiday season. While the child is shopping for their family members, a secret Santa is shopping for them. The gifts are then brought back and wrapped up, while the families enjoy a party just for them. They will have food and crafts. They might get a visit from Santa himself. This is a wonderful event where the family can sit back and forget about their problems for awhile as they are having a good time.
The Redford Jaycees host this event annually and we rely on the generous donations from local businesses and from the generosity of people who can afford to give, to help others enjoy Christmas as they do. Please find it in your heart to donate and help us to help out our local families. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and thank you for your support.
