The Special Abilities Christmas Shoppe at Calvary is Saturday, December 3rd, for local families who have children with special abilities. Families can "shop" for free toys on our campus while connecting with our Special Abilities Ministry.

Now through November 27th, bring NEW, UNWRAPPED toys, stuffed animals, books, bikes, electronics, etc. for babies, toddlers, children & teens.
 
This Amazon Wish List is for specific toys/gifts families with children who have special abilities have requested. If you prefer, you may purchase from this list and those items will be delivered to Calvary for that child.

Donated toys will also go to support  Community Christmas Shoppes, where 40+ churches provide free toys and the message of Jesus to 1500+ families across Ventura County. Qualified low-income families are invited to "shop" for free gifts through participating churches and agencies. While parents choose gifts, children’s activities are provided. We anticipate a great need this Christmas so we need YOUR help! For more info, click HERE.

A GRATEFUL AND JOYFUL HEART
