Y.E.S. Christmas Shopping Info for Dec. 13th

YES logoEvery year Youth Encouragement Services (Y.E.S.) hosts a Christmas Store where deserving families can come get Christmas presents for free.Each year they inevitably come up short on a couple of key items when all their donations are in and that’s when they call on us. The night before their Christmas Store they send us a detailed list of items they still need and we have the distinct honor of being last minute Santa to children in our community. It’s an incredible way for us to practice the heart of the Christmas season.

Here is the schedule for the shuttle* and shopping:

  • 6th and 7th graders will need to be at Woodmont at 5:00 pm Friday, December 13th and will be shuttled to Wal-Mart at 5:15 pm. The shuttle will arrive back at Wal-Mart at 5:45 to return them to Woodmont at which time they are free to start their group Christmas party.
  • 8th and 9th graders will need to be at Woodmont at 5:45pm Friday, December 13th and will be shuttled to Wal-Mart at 6:00 pm. The shuttle will arrive back at Wal-Mart at 6:45 to return them to Woodmont at which time they are free to start their group Christmas party.
  • 10th and 11th graders will need to be at Woodmont at 6:15pm Friday, December 13th and will be shuttled to Wal-Mart at 6:30. The shuttle will arrive back at Wal-Mart at 7:15 to return them to Woodmont at which time they are free to start their group Christmas party.
  • Seniors need to be at Woodmont at 7:00 pm.

Last year was our first time using this shuttle method, and it went pretty smoothly, but it depends on everyone being on time! 

And don’t forget! The change drive to fund this shopping spree will be happening in the lobby for the next two Sundays, so bring your piggy banks!

*Lifeguards, we ask that you be prepared to drive as well if the shuttle becomes full.
