The Christmas Store, located in the Xavier Building, 1435 N. Illinois Street, will open Dec. 2. More than 700 needy families will shop for Christmas gifts and clothing for their children. Donations of time, gifts and money help bring a brighter Christmas season for these families in need. In many cases, the gifts provided by the Christmas Store will be the ONLY Christmas items these families will receive. There are three ways you can help:
