Samaritan Place Market: Christmas Village Needs Our Help!

Nov 14, 2021 | Saint Luke's Updates, Service Opportunities

Again this year, Saint Luke’s is excited to serve The Samaritan Place: A Christmas Village. This is a shopping experience for invited guests to shop for the children in their home. Avondale Samaritan Place will be transformed into a Christmas market where local community members will be hired to work the shop and new gifts will be available at greatly reduced prices, affirming the God-given dignity of every participant. This in place of our work with Dove Tree in the past.

WE NEED YOUR HELP: You can make a child’s Christmas possible through whichever of the following is most convenient for you:

1. SHOP LOCAL… Snoozy’s Kids is ready to help! Provide George with an amount you are looking to spend and he and his staff will gather the items. Bring your unwrapped gifts to Saint Luke’s before November 28. Bins are available for drop-off at the Claypool Commons and Maloof entrances. Please be mindful of the cost of gifts, that toys not be overly expensive.

2. Purchase gifts from our Amazon wish list. You can even change the delivery address to CUMC Village, 350 Overbrook Road, Birmingham, AL 35213 and they will ship directly.

3. Financial donations are always welcome. These will allow us to shop and fill in with gifts that are needed. Please mark your donations with “Christmas Village” in the memo line.

Thank you for helping us serve these families and children during the Christmas season!
