The Barnabas Connection is currently receiving applications from families on the free and reduced lunch list for the annual Christmas Store. New items in the store (household, toys, games, coats, etc.) are priced at 75% off of retail. Each family selected from the application process is invited to spend up to $35 cash in the store, shopping for their children, family members, whoever they wish. The store will be open limited hours in early December at a temporary location
Feedback we have received from shoppers over the least 3 years have included excitement about the quality and affordability of items, and their ability to choose and purchase the items on their own.
Applications were sent home with students on the Free and Reduced lunch list in PreK-3rd grade. Students must attend school in Wimberley. Applications are due Monday, October 23 and can be turned into the front office at JWE or Scudder Primary.
Please note we are slowly growing this program so have not fully expanded to include and invite the entire community. If you have a compelling desire to participate please be in touch so we can consider your application once we know better our response level. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need an application.
Thank you to the Wimberley Rotary Club, Cypress Creek Church, Unity of Wimberley, and Wimberley United Methodist Church for participating!
