On Saturday, December 19th St. Andrew’s joined area churches and businesses to provide more than 350 local families with access to quality gifts for their children.
Throughout the day, low income families from Costa Mesa were invited to purchase donated gifts for pennies on the dollar, helping individuals to maintain their dignity while ensuring a joyous Christmas for their children.
During the preceding weeks, the St. Andrew’s family donated more than 500 gifts, 80 gift cards and additional donations to support the store.
Approximately 45 volunteers served on the courtyard and in the store, receiving, sorting, delivering and wrapping gifts. Many thanks to Dara Fairchild who led the effort on behalf of St. Andrew’s.
