Annual Events:
Children's Christmas Store

      December 10,2016

What started as a small idea by Kathy Olson (former owner of Olson Hardware) has now grown into something that Dallas Center kids look forward to each Christmas.

Throughout the year Boy Scout Troop 116 collects slightly used treasures from members of the Dallas Center community. In December, they are displayed at the Children's Christmas Store in the American Legion Hall for children to purchase as gifts for their families during Christmas time.

Each item or group of items for Dads, Moms, Brothers, Sisters, Grandpa and Grandma, etc. are sold for $0.25.

This helps teach the youth the real spirit of giving, with pride in knowing that they have picked out something special and paid for it themselves.

The Scouts shop with the children (parents are supposed to stay outside as to not spoil the surprise) and then wrap the gifts to be taken home and placed under the Christmas Tree.

We are not sure whether the children of Dallas Center or the Boy Scouts have the most fun with this event.

Can you help us with a donation?

Any new or used items for men, women and children are gratefully accepted and any funds raised during the shopping event are put back into purchasing more items and wrapping paper for the next Christmas season.

If anyone has a donation for the Children's Christmas Store, please call Lisa Howell at 314-9129 (cell) or 992-3728 (work).
