Christmas Store Set To Open

Christ­mas is right around the cor­ner, and it’s the time of year that folks nat­u­rally come together to help oth­ers who are less for­tu­nate.

This year, a com­mu­nity ser­vice project of the Defi­ance County Board of Devel­op­men­tal Dis­abil­i­ties and Good Samar­i­tan School, involves a sec­ond­hand Christ­mas store for the free dis­tri­b­u­tion of hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions to area fam­i­lies in need.

Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 1–5 and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Dec. 6. Now, dona­tions are being accepted for the store. They need gen­tly used Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions such as arti­fi­cial tree, old orna­ments, and work­ing lights, along with wreaths and other hol­i­day items that will brighten up the hol­i­day for some­one less for­tu­nate. Of course, money is also accepted.

You can drop off your dona­tions at 1838 E. Sec­ond Street in Defi­ance, that’s right next to Fam­ily Chris­t­ian Cen­ter in the Kroger plaza, between 10 and 2 on Nov. 22; and from 10 to 4 on both Nov. 24th and 25th. Items can also be left at the store dur­ing reg­u­lar store hours on Dec. 1st through 6th.
