Help children experience the joy of giving this holiday season.

The Christmas season is fast approaching and it’s time for the annual PCYC Children’s Christmas Gift Sale!

For just $1, North Minneapolis children can pick out 5 new gifts for their loved ones – mom, dad, grandma, sibling, cousin, etc. – and experience the joy of giving as they ‘shop’ alongside a caring volunteer.

We need over 5,000 gifts and 300 volunteers to transform our PCYC campus into a Christmas gift store and help 1,000 North Minneapolis youth shop for their loved ones on December 9, 2017.

We encourage you to participate in this spirit-filled event as an individual or group, eg. families, church and youth groups, book and garden clubs, work teams or other volunteer groups.

Here are some ways you or your group can participate:
