Guadalupe Center seeking donations for Holiday Gift Shop

EntSun News/10850837
NAPLES, Fla. - EntSun -- Guadalupe Center is requesting donations of children's gifts to restock its Holiday Gift Shop, an annual shopping experience that allows parents of Guadalupe Center students to select presents for their children.

Now through Dec. 4, Guadalupe Center will accept new, unwrapped donations of age-appropriate toys, clothing, shoes and other gifts for infants through teenagers. Each year, the Holiday Gift Shop provides presents to about 900 Immokalee students who otherwise might not receive gifts.

"So many families in Immokalee struggle with day-to-day living expenses in a typical year, and 2020 has been especially challenging," said Guadalupe Center President Dawn Montecalvo. "Every child should have a gift to open on Christmas morning, but for that to happen, we need help from the community. Generous individuals, residential communities, civic clubs and businesses can help make the Holiday Gift Shop a tremendous success."

The Holiday Gift Shop is open to parents of students in Guadalupe Center's nationally accredited Early Childhood Education Program, After-school Tutoring & Summer Enrichment Program and college-preparatory Tutor Corps Program.
