Christmas Store returns

Registration is now closed — we are full!

In partnership with Fairhaven Church, the Life Enrichment Center is once again hosting a Christmas Store for parents. The store will provide a place for people to purchase gifts for their children at a dramatically reduced price.

Registration for the Christmas Store will take place at the Life Enrichment Center at 425 N. Findlay St. during November. Shopping will take place by appointment at the Life Enrichment Center in early December. See the calendars below.

How it works: Children are registered in advance by parents or primary caregivers. A shopping appointment is made at registration. At the shopping appointment, the $15 per child fee is paid in cash. A personal shopper will guide you through the Christmas Store where you select new items based on the lists below. You take the items you selected to be gift wrapped and labeled so they are ready for your Christmas celebration.

Upon registration, a shopping appointment will be made.

What if I don’t have all the birth certificates or required documents when I register? You should wait until you have all your documents together. You will only be able to register children once.

Do you have childcare? No, we do NOT have childcare. Children, except nursing infants, are not allowed in the shopping area. Please plan accordingly. 

I still have questions or I can’t make my shopping appointment?
