Affordable Christmas

  • Karis Westside 1703 West Worley Street Columbia, MO, 65203 United States (map)

Affordable Christmas is an opportunity to empower low-income parents to purchase Christmas gifts for their children at an affordable cost while celebrating the holiday with dignity. On December 3, Karis will open a Christmas store by invitation only for families to buy presents well below retail value for their children.

You can help by:

Donating a gift. Stop by the Nook at Westside beginning this Sunday to pick a gift off the giving tree. Buy it and bring it back to Westside by November 27 to be included.

Volunteering your time. Register on The City to choose a position you’d like to work on December 3. It will take a lot of us joining in to pull this event off and give 20 families a memorable Christmas. Don’t delay, sign up for your preferred slot today!
