Home > Latest News > Holiday Store 2016: Volunteers and Donors Needed!

It’s that time again — Holiday Store time! Moving in the Spirit’s Holiday Store, our most anticipated volunteer opportunity of the year, is happening December 10-11, 2016.

Our young people earn points throughout the year for keeping their commitments — things like being on time for class, dressing in their uniform and staying focused. At the Holiday Store, they are rewarded with an opportunity to use those points to “buy” gifts for their families. The Store is 100% stocked with donated items and brought to life by caring volunteers.

This year, we’ve added a fun twist! We’ve moved to a new location, and in order to make the shopping experience special for each student, the Holiday Store will be open for two days this year — Saturday and Sunday.

This festive and meaningful event would not be possible without the generosity of our community. To get involved with the Holiday Store, you can: donate new or gently used items or sign up to volunteer.

The Holiday Store is a wonderful event completely dependent upon the generous donations extended to Moving in the Spirit. If you are considering making a donation to encourage our 200+ hardworking and enthusiastic young dancers, visit our Wish List for desired gift items.
