Santa at clothe a child

Every year, New Albany Elks Lodge 270 hosts about 150 local grade school children and their guardian to a morning of shopping for clothes. After shopping, the children are treated with a toy.

This year, we have split up the shopping days into 2 days with 3 times each day.

  • December 5 and December 12
  • 7 am to 8 am, 8 am to 9 am and 9 am to 10 am both days

We need volunteers to shop with the child and their guardian at the Walmart on Grant Line Road.  You can choose to shop for 1 hour, 2 hours or all 3 hours.  It’s a joy to watch the children be able to select clothes they want and need.
