Christmas is coming early this year as we prepare for Giftmart in July & August, and we'd love your help getting ready!
The Compass Church’s Hobson Campus is partnering with Giftmart, a reimagined holiday shop that provides an opportunity for under-resourced families in our community to buy toys for their children in a dignified manner. This year, with your love and assistance, we are creating and hosting a Giftmart at Scott Elementary School, located just two miles from our campus, for families from Scott, Naper, and Ellsworth schools. The $2 per gift purchase price will be donated to the school’s education fund.
There are two ways to get involved with Giftmart:
1. Sign up to volunteer. There are opportunities for approximately 100 people to serve at this year’s Giftmart. You can serve in advance by crocheting beanie hats, assembling a special gift for each family, or putting together the snacks and crafts for the childcare area. Or, you can serve the night before or day of Giftmart.
Sign up to volunteer HERE.
If you are currently screened and background checked to serve with children/youth and are interested in serving on the Kids Team at Giftmart, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Purchase toys. Our goal is to collect 1,200 toys this year. We’ve created an Amazon Wish List for your convenience HERE. Or, please print out our toy list HERE.
