Holiday Shoppe helps more than 100 families annually, providing the opportunity for adults and children to exchange gifts during the holiday season as they work with TESSA to build lives of safety and self-sufficiency.
TESSA Families are invited to the main office to ‘shop’ from a variety of new items (all donations from our generous community) and of course, all ‘shopping’ is free.
Guardians and children can also have the gifts they’ve selected wrapped so they leave ready for their holiday celebration.
This Year’s Holiday Shoppe has passed.
We were so very fortunate for all the gifts given and that we/you were able to provide a wonderful Christmas this year. Without you we could not have been able to do this. On behalf of more than 80 families served in the 2019 Holiday Shoppe, thank you for your generous contribution that will make a difference in their lives this holiday season. This is what the season is about. To survivors, your gift this season means help along the road to recovery.
From all of us here at TESSA, thank you for your time and donations and for lifting the hopes of our clients.
Volunteer opportunities during the event include:
ELVES– greet clients and guide them through the different shopping areas. Wrap gifts and tag them for families. Replenish the shopping areas as needed.
Volunteer shifts are two hours each shift. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of your shift.
