What is Pass Along Party

The annual Christmas PASS ALONG PARTY gifting or re-gifting event is held annually in December just before Christmas to help special families in our community. Children and adults are given the opportunity to Christmas shop from donations. The best part, Pass Along Party gathers gently used or new items you no longer need or that your kids have out grown. It is a great way to help make the holidays extra special for many families in our community that often struggle to put food on the table, let alone gifts under the tree. It is also great life lesson for your kids as well, especially this time of year. Pass Along Party accepts new or gently used items, including household items because kids shop for their parents too.
