Local businesses raised money for the Montgomery County Christmas Store & Dine.
The Christmas store is a volunteer, community based group that offers holiday shopping to low income families.
The owner of John’s Camera’s and Record’s, John E. Kline, said, “We’re doing 10 % of our record sales toward the Christmas store. It’s pretty cold out, we haven’t had a lot of people, but we’ve sold a couple hundred dollars worth. The Christmas store is a good thing. I’ve lived here all my life practically, I know the Christmas store has helped out a lot of families.”
The following businesses are participating in this fundraiser:
- Cabo Fish Taco
- Capone’s Jewelry
- Fringe Benefit
- Gourmet Pantry
- Johns Cameras and Records- 10% of our vinyl record sales
- Next Door Bake Shop
- Real Life Dental
- Sugar Magnolia
- T.R. Collection
The money will go towards helping the Montgomery County Christmas store meet its budget of $256,000. The money is used to buy new winter clothing, new toys, new teen gifts and food for a Christmas meal.
The Christmas store will be open for eligible shoppers November 4 to December 8.
