Another Successful Children's Shopping Day - Thank YOU Lowell!
Children’s Shopping Day Event – Saturday, November 30th
December 2, 2013
Our second annual Children’s Shopping Day last Saturday confirmed our observation from last year’s event: children really like to shop, too! Once again, we offered over a hundred children the opportunity to shop on their own or with the help of a very caring and gentle teenage volunteer and get their gifts wrapped to take home for the holidays. After three hours of shopping exclusively set aside for kids, we tried something new by opening the rest of the afternoon to adult shoppers as well. Shopping was brisk and by the end of the event, there was nothing left!
Serenaded by the the Neverly Brother’s live acoustic guitar music, families came in from the cold to also buy raffle tickets for an iPod, snack on homemade goodies from our bake sale, and discover bargains at our book sale. In total, the Friends made over $1,600, all of which will support the Pollard Memorial Library.
Thank you all again for your generous gift donations, your time volunteering, and your constant support. You made Children’s Shopping Day as enjoyable as last year’s Day, and we hope to hear from you again next year.
