Children’s Gift Sale-December 14

Help children experience the joy of giving this holiday season.
Saturday, December 14
9am – 1pm
PCYC, North Minneapolis

The holiday season is fast approaching and it’s time for the annual PCYC Children’s 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 3,000 gifts and 150 volunteers to transform our PCYC campus into a gift store and help 650 North Minneapolis youth shop for their loved ones on December 14, 2019.

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