At the Crisis Nursery Children’s Holiday Shop, little ones shop for gifts priced between $2 – $10. “Celebrity” Appearances:
Thursday 12/8 – Illini Cheer 3-6pm
Friday 12/9 – Elsa and Anna 3-6pm
Saturday 12/10 – Santa 8-9am and 3:30-5pm
*Sponsorships are available! Check them out on our website at www.crisisnursery.net/holiday-shop
How it works:
– You set the budget and help your child fill out who they will be shopping for, before they come in. It is helpful to include age and gender next to each name so that volunteers may help guide them to an appropriate gift.
– A volunteer shops with your kiddo while you wait.
– The same volunteer will come to you with a grand total and collect payment. You can pay by cash or card. Note: There is a flat $3 fee to pay by card.
– The volunteer helps to wrap the gifts so that they remain a secret.
– Your little one is returned to you with gifts in hand!
Dates and times are:
Thursday, December 8, 3-6pm
