Coachella Valley Christmas Store

This Christmas we will be partnering as a Church community with The Narrow Door ministry's Christmas Store outreach.

A Little About the Coachella Valley Christmas Store

Since 2004, the Coachella Valley Christmas Store has been serving families who do not have the financial means to provide Christmas gifts or a special meal for the holidays.

Staffed by volunteers from across the valley, the CV Christmas Store is set like a department store. Parents are escorted through the store with their own personal shopper, going from room-to-room to select an age-appropriate gift they think is just right for their child. The gifts are then wrapped and labeled for each child. While this is happening the children are cared for in the children’s area where volunteers have planned Christmas activities.

In addition, the families take home a family portrait photographed that day along with a box of food, good wishes and cheer. By approaching the project in this manner, we are able to boost family self-esteem and provide encouragement from the volunteers with whom they interact.

Toy and clothes donations can be dropped off on Sunday mornings or arrange a pickup via the contact info below.
