[quote=Sunshine73;191384]...then the parents get to come to the church and be our guest to "shop" for their children's toys. With a "host" volunteer along to help them carry their purchases, the parents get to pick out three (nice) gifts for each of their children along with stocking stuffers (this is done so they get the experience of actually shopping and choosing toys that their children would enjoy).
Then the gifts are wrapped by volunteer wrappers (so no worries about having money for wrapping paper) and batteries, etc. are supplied so everything works on Christmas morning. Then, the parents are given food for their Christmas dinner. Finally, everything is carried by more volunteers out to their cars. The goal is to make them feel like pampered, special shoppers and not like they're there for charity. quote]
This is one of the BEST ideas I have ever heard! So, so, so special. Thanks for sharing!
