Keeping CHRISTmas Market Report


Keeping CHRISTmas Market Exceeds Expectations!

At the completion of our month-long Virtual Keeping Christmas Market, the total receipts were $6,890, nearly $1,000 more than estimated* total donations to the same organizations in 2019!  Your gifts were distributed as follows:

  • Family Promise — $895 in gift cards
  • Habitat for Humanity — $2,067
  • Heifer International — $2,067
  • Hope Harbor — $965 in gift cards
  • La Semilla Learning Center — $896

Janette Ditkowsky, who coordinates TPC Choir Scrip sales, reports that the Market’s gift card purchases for Family Promise and Hope Harbor resulted in a $55.65 contribution to the music program.  (The gift cards purchased for the TPC Giving Tree resulted in a $123.69 contribution.)

Thank you to all who responded so generously to this outpouring of love for neighbors near and far using a new model of giving!

*The value of gifts collected by Hope Harbor, formerly Laurel House, are not reported to TPC.  A value for Hope Harbor’s 2019 receipts was, therefore, estimated based upon 2018 records, when TPC was responsible for collecting gifts.
