The Children We Serve
Photos of the children and their families on "Santa Day"

We open the doors to the Clydesdale Children's Christmas Store at 8:00 a.m. on the Saturday before Christmas.  Our volunteers have already been hard at work since 6:00 a.m. and will continue to work for the next twelve hours.

To keep from being overwhelmed by the crowd and shortage of space, we send out letters to each family, assigning them a time period of either morning or afternoon.  Children receive their gifts on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our hard-working servers keep the crowd fed!
To alleviate the tedium of waiting, we provide refreshments.  Coloring books are provided, courtesy of the local USDA office, and we provide crayons so the children are kept busy while waiting.  We also bring a couple of portable televisions and VCRs so the children can also watch Christmas videos.
