The Christmas Store is a tradition that brings lots of excitement and smiles to the Boys & Girls Club of the Northern Neck (BGCNN).
For the past seven years, volunteer Jackie Ammons and her mother, Sandy Newman, have volunteered to help stock the shelves and man the store. The pair accept donations of new items and gift cards and then shop for gifts to stock the store, which is set up in the Peg Freeman Gallery in the Boys & Girls Club, 517 North Main Street, Kilmarnock.
“I do not have kids of my own, so I guess this is just my way of giving back,” said Ammons. “We love to do it.”
