Christmas Store - December 16
How you can help!!!
The ministry of Urban Impact works with the residents of PT Barnum housing complex in Bridgeport. We focus on tutoring, mentoring and teaching life skills to students. Additionally we come along side parents to help raise their kids to have an active walk with Christ.
Each Christmas we run a Christmas Store for the parents. We have learned that instead of giving Christmas gifts to the kids we work with (100+ kids), we need to encourage, uplift and empower the parents by providing a place they can purchase gifts for their kids. The toys, bikes, games and sports equipment are priced at a fraction of the cost they are worth and parents will not pay more than $20 total for their “purchase that night.”
We have found that is very rewarding for the parents to be able to go home with a bag full of wrapped gifts purchased for their own kids with their hard earned money.
