The Blakely Holiday Shop is a fun event for kids and volunteers alike! It's is an annual tradition that goes back decades. It's a great way to up-cycle items and gives kids a chance to be givers. Families donate items ahead of time and Blakely students shop the gym for holiday gifts for their family - all items are only 50 cents!
Parents wait in the lobby while their children shop in the gym and your kids will emerge with wrapped gifts so they remain a surprise. Kindergarten students shop from 4:30 - 5:00, then grades 1-4 join them in groups that start entering the gym at 5:00. Kids shop for the people in their immediate families first and have those presents wrapped. If they want to stay to do more shopping, we open it up for unlimited shopping at 6:00!
Two ways you can support this event:
1) Starting the Monday after Thanksgiving, donate gently used items at the Blakely office - we need toys, books, jewelry...things that would make good presents for parents and siblings. We also need gift wrap donated.
2) Sign up via this link to help at the Holiday Shop! www.SignUpGenius.com/go/
*High school and middle school students are welcome to fulfill volunteer hours by volunteering to wrap presents or help students shop.
