The holidays can be particularly stressful for Academy participants who are just beginning to rebuild their lives after prison. Like any parent, they want to see the delight in their children’s eyes when they unwrap a brand-new toy. That’s why Concordance is hosting a Holiday Shopping event that will give participants the opportunity to buy presents for their little ones at discounted prices.
Give a little JOY this season …
CONTRIBUTE: We will be accepting new, unwrapped gifts for children ages 2-18 until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 15. Items can be dropped off at Concordance Academy (1845 Borman Court) between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Special arrangements can also be made, if necessary.
VOLUNTEER: We are looking for volunteers to help serve as greeters, shopping attendants, checkout clerks, and to supervise the children’s play area.
