Highland is excited to once again serve our community through The Christmas Store at Highland! For the past seven years, this store has served as a wonderful way to build relationships through shopping for Christmas presents with families we have met through a variety of local ministries. This year we will be practicing social distancing and adjusting our usual practices to follow the governor’s recommendations for COVID-19 best practices.
This year, the store will look a little different, but our goal will be the same. The store is an alternative to gift sponsorship that allows parents and caregivers the opportunity to provide for and pick out gifts for their children. Each year, you generously donate new toys and books, which constitutes the merchandise in our Christmas Store. Parents shop from a variety of items and buy their gifts at an 80% discount. Each year, the store is staffed with a small group of volunteers, so the shoppers can have a true Christmas shopping experience. They select gifts themselves with their individual children in mind. The store offers gifts for children from birth to age 18. In addition, each family is given one free book per child.
In order to maintain social distancing, this year we invite donations to be shipped directly to the church. Highland Christmas Store ℅ Highland Baptist Church, 1101 Cherokee Rd, Louisville, KY 40204. Please note that all gifts must be received by December 5. We have wish lists set up at:
