Friday, December 20: 12 noon-8 pm at Hamilton Road
The BigHouse “Santa’s Workshop” is designed to allow foster families to shop for gifts for the children in care in their home. These gifts will be donated prior to the event and set up like a retail store so the families can go “shopping” in the Hamilton Road Worship Area. We will also have Rock City set up with $1-$5 gifts for the foster children to pick out to give their foster families and foster siblings. There will even be a section for the children to gift wrap their items before taking them home to put under the tree. The goal is to help foster kids discover the joy of giving and allow them the autonomy to choose gifts for those in their family.
Cornerstone has offered to assist the BigHouse by providing:
- light, festive refreshments for the event (these can be brought to Cornerstone ahead of time and placed in the freezer until December 20)
- volunteers to help children pick out and wrap gifts for their foster family members (please, no one under 12 unless they are with a parent volunteer)
- donations of gifts ($1-$5 items) for the family member gifts
- set-up on Friday morning, December 20, at Cornerstone
