OKLAHOMA CITY — It may not feel like Christmas out there with the warmer weather we’ve been enjoying, but it’s that time of year again. A time when Oklahoma’s families in need are facing the sad fact that they may not have anything to put under the tree.
To help ensure families can provide for themselves and their children this year, Catholic Charities has partnered with Sunbeam Family services to open the St. Nick Shoppe, a store where families in need will have the opportunity to pick out whatever is on their list.
“We allow our clients to come in and get gifts for themselves to give to their children, so it’s an opportunity to have dignity, to come in and pick out their own things instead of having someone else select them for them,” said Catholic Charities Board Member, Shellie Greiner.
The group is able to provide the St. Nick Shoppe through generous donations, and right now, there is a desperate need for kid’s toys, and other items like men’s and women’s coats, kitchen, gadgets, and gift cards, to name a few.
If you would like to help, we have attached a complete list of the items still needed. The St. Nick Shoppe will be open for families in need to come and shop from December 16-20.
