Free Christmas Store for Low-Income Families


For the past 19 years the Catholic Action Center has organized the Faith and Family Community Christmas Store where low-income families can shop, for free.

This year, for the second time, it is at Southland Christian Church on Richmond Road in Lexington.

The store will be held Dec. 17-19 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Volunteers and donations are still needed.  To volunteer click here.

Families are asked to clean out their closets  and donate gently used, pre-loved toys, books, and games to share with children in need in our community.

More than 18,000 children were shopped for at last year’s Faith & Community Christmas Store.

All donations are tax deductible.

The Catholic Action Center said regardless of circumstances, parents can come to Southland Christian Church to get a ticket with a shopping time.

Parents can shop for up to four kids with a personal shopping guide.

Donations can be dropped off at Southland Christian Church or at the PODS and Hippo Crates around town.

Gifts for teenagers are greatly needed.
