LaPorte County Deserving Children Shopping Tour
Deserving Children Shopping Tour is a local charity where money is raised to take the children of LaPorte County shopping. 100% of the money raised stays here in LaPorte County. In previous years the children went shopping with approved chaperones and were also treated to a visit with Santa, free happy meals and a gift bag full of holiday goodies. Due to Covid restrictions and precautions, we will have our volunteer shoppers do the shopping without the kids, then drop off at their homes or if you prefer, drop the items off at their schools. Last year over 600 children in LaPorte County were able to take advantage of this program. The LaPorte County Realtors hold fundraising events throughout the year to support this need in our community.
This year the shopping events will take place on December 8th for Michigan City and December 9th for La Porte. Volunteers are needed for both nights. The shopping will take place at the La Porte Walmart, Michigan City Walmart, and Michigan City Meijer. Please consider spending a few hours during the Holiday Season to help create a wonderful season for the children in need. Use the button below to begin the registration process. Please contact the board office if you have any questions.
