MODELS Christmas Boutique

Each year, the MODELS Parenting Program hosts a Christmas Boutique for their participants.  The moms in the program earn points throughout the year and at Christmas time, they get to shop for Christmas gifts for their children.

While you're out shopping for Christmas gifts, consider picking up one or more of these items and donating them to the Christmas Boutique so the moms in this program can get their children the items they need.

Please bring unwrapped gifts to Cabarrus Partnership for Children at 1307 S. Cannon Blvd in Kannapolis between November 21 - December 2.  Be sure to mention that your donation is for the Christmas Boutique.
