Wesley’s Christmas Store


Registration for the 2016 Christmas & Holiday Store is now open!

Wesley’s Christmas & Holiday is unique in that it provides a shopping experience, and has no age restriction for gifts.

Shoppers at the Christmas Store receive food, new gifts and knitted items for children and families.  Set up like a store, participants choose their own food and news gifts for each member of their family in a dignified shopping experience.  Instead of money, we use points based on number of people in the household.
