What is Gift Mart?
Love Out Loud sponsored the third Christmas for the City Gift Mart to serve the communities of our city:
Saturday, December 15, 2018, Benton Convention Ctr
The Gift Mart provides an opportunity for parents to purchase, in a store-type setting, new and like new toys and gifts for their children (including tween and teens) at greatly reduced prices. Families who shop at the Gift Mart are referred to us through the non-profits with whom we partner.
Why Does it Matter?
Parents want to provide for their children. But some find themselves in very tight places and are having a challenge doing so. The Gift Mart provides an opportunity for parents to purchase new and like-new holiday gifts and toys for their children at a cost of $2 to $5 each.
