Good Tidings Christmas Store

A holiday gift store is being planned to help families in the Hilliard School District who could not otherwise afford presents for their children this holiday season.

Organized by SON Ministries, the Good Tidings Christmas Store offers families the chance to shop for their children, ages 1 to 18, choosing their own gifts and paying approximately 10 percent of the actual value.

SON Ministries is seeking churches, families, local businesses and other organizations who wish to help make this store a success by donating, volunteering or making a financial contribution.

BMW Financial Services, which has donated to SON Ministries annually since the very first year of the Hilliard Free Summer Lunch program in 2007, is conducting a company toy drive and donating the items to the Good Tidings Christmas Store.

Families interested in shopping should complete a reservation form, available through Hilliard City Schools guidance counselors or at son-ministries.org. Mail completed forms to Good Tidings Christmas Store, 4066 Main St., Hilliard, Ohio, 43026. Forms must be received by Dec. 6.

Families will be contacted by phone with a specific shopping date, time and location.

Additional information is available by calling 614-777-2222, extension 8259 or by visiting the website son-ministries.org.
