2021 Reimagined Children’s Gift Sale

It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags.

PCYC’s 2021 Gift Sale needs your help! 

For 55 joyful holiday seasons, PCYC transformed its campus into a gift store where North Minneapolis youth shopped for their loved ones. Last year, due to COVID, we had to reimagine this event.  And thanks to everyone’s generous contributions, PCYC program participants received a special holiday gift of $100 along with our traditional Gift Sale candy cane!

This year, as gift sale time neared, PCYC staff, board and community members again 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 several options we’ve decided to hold our reimagined event once more. We’ll  distribute a monetary holiday gift to more than 100 current PCYC families who can use the gift 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 2022, when we can imagine safely welcoming hundreds of children and families to PCYC’s 58th Annual Children’s Gift Sale.

Best wishes, one and all.

Thank you.
