The Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County annual Christmas Shop will start today and run through Thursday.  We anticipate over 500 local youth will participate and be able to shop for gifts for their families this holiday season.

Over 250 volunteers from the community will help youth shop with a personal shopper to pick out gifts, box the items and wrap the items this week.  More than 25,000 gifts have been donated all year-long by individuals and local businesses.

New co-chairs for the event Tye Hill, Jane Rosa and Aileen Githens have taken over the event this year from long time chair Carla Stidham.  Stidham remains very active in helping to make this event a huge success.

We collaborate with Girls Inc. and Townsend center to serve their youth members as well members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County.

This is a great photo opportunity.
