The children's bazaar returns from 9 a.m.- noon Saturday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.
Event co-chairs Cathy Walters and Beth Pattillo will host the fifth annual event. This service project, which began five years ago as part of Winter Fest, gives the children of the community ages 5-12 the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for their loved ones. Younger children may also participate as long as the child has a shopping list and is responsible for his/her money.
Volunteers are on hand to assist shoppers and wrap the new or like-new gifts that have been donated during the year.
Shoppers are encouraged to write out their shopping lists before arriving at the church.
This year's bazaar proceeds will go to three causes: LA Cares, donation for African malaria-prevention mosquito netting and to the new TOTH parish hall," Walters said.
From past years, the two co-chairs have many rewarding and memorable stories.
"Children can be very excited shopping and rush through their lists," Pattillo said. "One little boy picked up a book, did not look at the title, and put the book in his shopping bag. He said it was for his mom. I asked him, how do you know your mother will like that book? He replied very confidently, my mom will like it, she will read anything."
