Once again this holiday season, the New City family will partner with UrbanPromise to purchase and donate new, unopened gifts for the annual Christmas Promise Shop. UrbanPromise invites local families to shop for and purchase gifts at deeply discounted prices for their children, offering dignity and joy at a challenging time of year. All proceeds from the shop will benefit UrbanPromise.
We'll collect new, unwrapped gifts and gift cards with the original price marked on them from November 1-November 29. You may also donate financially to the Christmas Promise Shop fund online, or by marking your cash or check offering toward the Christmas Promise Shop. If you're not giving online, you can leave your gift in the drop boxes at our locations or mail it in. If you are unable to be at one of our New City locations on a Sunday, you can visit our drive-thru drop-off outside the SouthPark campus east lobby (Carmel Park side) on Wednesday, November 18 from 4:00-6:00 pm or Tuesday, December 1 from 6:00-8:00 pm.
This year, we will partner with two UrbanPromise locations to serve over 100 families.
