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 with the original price marked on them from November 12–December 3.
You may also donate financially to the Christmas Promise Shop:
Where We'll Serve
This year, we will partner with two UrbanPromise locations to serve around 120 families.
How it works:
Bring new, unwrapped gifts with the original price marked on them to either of our New City locations by Sunday, December 3. If you are unable to bring your gift to one of our locations on a Sunday, you can drop it off at New City SouthPark gym (2500 Carmel Rd.) on Monday, November 20 or 27 or December 4 from 6:30–7:30 pm.
Note: The earlier we receive the gifts, the better prepared we can be for the Promise Shop!
Give online to the Christmas Promise Shop fund by December 9. You may also leave your donation in a drop box at any New City location or mail it in. Please designate that it is for Christmas Promise Shop on the check or envelope.
Proceeds from the Christmas Promise Shop will go to UrbanPromise CLT.
