Christmas Store

Each year STEP collects donations of new, unwrapped children’s gifts with the original purchase price intact. These donations are then marked to half price or less and made available to the parents of children living in Gilpin Court and surrounding communities. The Christmas store offers parents the dignity of making a sacrifice of love for their children at an affordable price.

Suggested Gifts:
· Skateboards
· Arts & crafts
· Building blocks
· Sports equipment (basketballs)
· Electronics
· Video games
· Toy cars/trucks
· Bikes
· African-American dolls
· Educational toys
· Gift cards to fast food restaurants
