Shoppers Wanted


Immanuel's "Christmas Families" program is looking for people who would like to help shop for toys and clothing either online or at local stores.

Much of the shopping will take place just before and on "Black Friday": from Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28 4pm - to Friday, November 29 11am. Many things can be bought online starting Friday, November 29 at midnight (earlier for some stores), but we still need to go to stores to look at new toys and find bargains not available online. We need to select items, call the online person who is standing by to see whether the item is available online, load up shopping carts, wait in line to pay, load up cars, and take things to Santa's workshop.

This is a community-building experience and a lot of fun working through the night and thinking about how children will get joy and learn from the toys we select.

We also need right away someone who is very knowledgeable about art supplies and can advise on art kits to buy, so we can order them wholesale.

If you think this is something you'd like to help with, please contact Linda Serabian at serabian@somaarchitects.com or at 703-683-5226 during the day.
