PCYC’s Annual Children’s Gift Sale
in the Year of Doing Things Differently

Every holiday season for the past 55 years, PCYC has transformed its campus into a gift store where North Minneapolis youth shop for their loved ones. This year, as you might imagine, we had to reimagine this event.

First and foremost, PCYC staff, board and community members considered the safety of children and families in North Minneapolis, where COVID-19 continues to take its toll at a more aggressive pace. We considered the logistics of sorting gifts, creating the “holiday store,” and the advisability of gathering hundreds of volunteers to assist with the event.

After contemplating many options we’ve decided, this year, to scale back, be safe, and distribute gift cards to current PCYC families who can use them as they wish and in a way that will bring them joy.

Our efforts this year come with our fervent hope for the good health and safety of everyone this holiday season. We look forward to December 2021, when we can imagine safely welcoming hundreds of children and families to PCYC’s 57th Annual Children’s Gift Sale in the new Capri.

Best wishes, one and all.

Thank you.

**Donations must be received by Tuesday, December 8.
