Thank you for being part of
The Christmas Shoppe!

Because of generous people like you, we are able to offer a “hand-up” shopping experience for Whatcom Dream’s hardworking families at Christmas time. At the event families will first enjoy dinner, then pick out and purchase brand new gifts for their children at 75% off retail!

The event will take place in early December at Northlake Community Church in Bellingham.

All gifts must be delivered unwrapped by 4pm on Dec 4th to the WBA office at 2423 E Bakerview Rd.

For more information, please call 360.746.0418.

Below is a suggested list if you need ideas for age-appropriate donations.

  • Lego or Erector sets
  • Dolls or action figures

For teens (ages 13-18):

We suggest gift cards for teens, which allows parents to purchase a unique item for their child at the store.
