Show the love of Jesus to our refugee neighbors this Christmas season by giving and serving at the Vickery Christmas Market.
What is Vickery Christmas Market?
Each Christmas season, Northwest has the unique opportunity to invest in our refugee neighbors at the Northwest Community Center through the Vickery Christmas Market while also giving them the chance to give back to their community.
At the Vickery Christmas Market, refugee families will have the chance to give back to their community by bringing canned goods such as beans and rice for the Tasby Middle School food pantry. In return, they will have the opportunity to select a gift for their child.
This is a great opportunity for us to show our refugee neighbors the love of Jesus and create opportunities for having conversations about Jesus! We want to make the Christmas Market this year COVID-friendly while still giving as many families as possible the chance to pick out gifts for their children, so we’ve made a few adjustments this year!
When is Vickery Christmas Market?
Saturday, December 12 | 9 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
Give to the Vickery Christmas Market by purchasing gifts on our Amazon Wish List and delivering them to the Northwest Community Center any time before December 10. Our refugee students helped us pick these gifts! If you'd rather shop in person, please purchase items similar to our Amazon Wishlist and drop off new toys at the NCC during business hours.
We will pre-wrap all gifts in advance and organize them by gift type. We appreciate your help sticking to our gift list as this will make shopping easier for our guests!
Serve with the Vickery Christmas Market in a variety of ways! At the Market on December 12, you can greet and welcome our refugee neighbors. You can also serve in advance of the event by wrapping gifts at a wrap party on December 3 or 10. These pre-wrapped gifts will be ready for our refugee neighbors to pick up immediately during the Christmas Market! This is a great opportunity for the entire family to serve and show off your wrapping skills.
