2018 = Success!!
The CAM Christmas store is officially over! On behalf of everyone here at CAM, we want to extend our sincerest thank you to all those who were involved with our Christmas store. Those who helped us set up and decorate, those who helped our wonderful clients shop for Christmas toys and gifts, those who shopped for gifts and toys for the kids, those who helped us tear down and clean after everything was over, and so many more. We couldn’t have done it without your help and support. CAM was able to help a total of 1,013 children and teens during the 2018 holiday season! We far exceeded the number of kids we helped in 2017. Our Northwest location helped 383 children and teens and our Downtown location helped 630, all in thanks to YOU!
The CAM Christmas Store provides an emergency, free shopping experience. More than 800 children will have an incredible Christmas despite the fact their families are facing a serious financial crisis. Parents get to select gifts that their children will like. Join us in sharing the joy of the season and making a difference in the lives of San Antonio families by donating new toys or hosting a toy drive at your home, work, or church.
Starting November 1st, CAM urges folks to start these toy drives so we can supply the Christmas Store with lots of toys for families in need. We need gifts for all ages (0 – 18 years) – infants to teenagers, boys & girls. All toy donations need to be new. We can also use new or used Christmas lights, decorations or gift wrapping – even partially used rolls of paper!
Another way folks can join in is to volunteer to help with the setup of the store and then assist the families when choosing toys during their appointment.
