At the First Baptist Christmas store this year, gifts were provided for 94 children (35 families), ages birth-18. Parents got to shop for their gifts and get them wrapped at the gift wrapping table — thanks go to the Quota Club for all the gift wrapping supplies. Parents even got to enjoy home-made cookies and punch while they waited. Many extra items were provided at the “stocking stuffer” table.
