Donations needed for Blakely Children's Holiday Shop

The annual Blakely Children's Holiday Shop is now accepting donations.

The Holiday Shop is an annual tradition at Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary that gives students the chance to buy presents for their family and friends. All items are only 50 cents, and children shop in the gym and get their gifts wrapped while their parents wait in the lobby.

The Children's Holiday Shop will be held on Dec. 11.

The shop welcomes any new or gently used items: books, toys, jewelry, mugs, ties, scarves, etc. Donations can be dropped off in the office during school hours.

For more information, or to help volunteer at the shop, contact Heidi Blair at
