Current of Tampa Bay presents “Affordable Christmas”


This December, we are proud to be sponsors of “Affordable Christmas,” an event put on by our good friends over at Current.

It will be held on Saturday, December 7 in Tampa from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Affordable Christmas is a shopping event, hosted by Crossover Church, that invites low-income families to browse the “aisles” to find gifts they wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. The gifts are then wrapped for them while they enjoy a meal (and child care), courtesy of the church!

Sounds awesome, right?

Our involvement as a sponsor means the following:

  1. We’ll be donating some new (unopened) toys and games to Current for the invited families
  2. If we don’t have toys to donate, we can donate money (even the smallest amount helps, and $20 buys a new toy)
  3. We’ll be volunteering that day at the event – Volunteers are needed to help out as table workers, personal shoppers and gift wrappers!

This event is going to be lots of fun. And, we can bring our families along to help! The young ones can even play with other kids in the day care while we volunteer.

All you need to do to sign up is visit the Affordable Christmas site and under “Tampa Event,” click “Donate” or “Volunteer.” It’s that easy.

Hope to see you all on the 7th!

P.S. If you are in the Tampa Bay area and have new/unused items to donate (that meet the criteria on the site), and won’t be able to volunteer, you can drop them off with us. Just shoot us an e-mail.
