Christmas Village Toy Store

 December 9, 2017 

The Christmas Village Toy Store strives to empower participants to see beyond their current circumstances and to begin embracing a future of hope.  We exist to offer a dignified alternative for families who want to provide gifts for their children.  A “hand up” produces joy and dignity in ways that a “hand out” never can!  Invited shoppers will be able to purchase new toys for deep discounted prices.  Store opens December 9, 2017 for one day.  CVTS Proceeds benefit Local and International Children’s educational and Community programs.

Here is how you can be involved

  1. Host a Toy Drive through your Job, Community, or Organization.  Toy Drive November 5 – December 3, 2017
  2. Donate new, unwrapped gifts for children ages birth – 18 years
  3. Volunteer at the Christmas Village Toy Store
  4. Share Shopper Invitations with families you know who can use a “hand up”

Safe Sitter Classes

Staying safe is not only in the name, it’s the foundation of the curriculum.  This workshop is designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.  Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.  The instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises.  Students even get to use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR.

Classes are offered at Nations Ford Community Church on the following dates from 9am-4pm:

January 13, 2018
April 7, 2018
July 14, 2018
October 6, 2018
