For 25 years, Rose Brooks Center has hosted the Holiday Store to collect gifts and urgent needs for the adults and children receiving our services at Rose Brooks Center. New, unwrapped gifts are collected at the 25th Anniversary Holiday Store and given directly to the families. The store helps families create a special holiday season, even during crisis, and empowers them to celebrate their lives together with a bright, safe future.
You can help make this holiday special for the families and pets of Rose Brooks Center.
How It Works
The Holiday Store is a donation drop-off point where groups and individuals can drop off new gift items so Rose Brooks Center can help families celebrate the holidays. The Holiday Store comes into play when we transfer all of the wonderful donations collected back to emergency shelter and set it up like a store. Then a “shopping day” is determined, and our families shop from the items donated to select gifts for their children, at no cost to them. Mom’s gift items are brought to our children’s center so the children can then select gifts for their Moms. The children absolutely love this part and feel so grateful to be able to put a smile on mom’s face.
