The St. Paul FCSS was packed with children picking gifts for their parents yesterday, and will be again today for Shop Til We Drop.
The program aims to teach children the value and joy of giving during the holiday season. For a small donation, they can pick out an item to give their parents for Christmas while mom and Dad enjoy coffee and tea. If you missed it yesterday, it’s on from 9 to 2 today. Organizer Sheila Park says there’s no shortage of things for the kids to pick. They even have to put some of them on the floor to make space!
If your child isn’t all that gifted in the way of arts and crafts, don’t worry, volunteers are on hand to the wrapping.
