The Beth Capuson Christmas Store sponsored by Friendship United Methodist Church is fast approaching. Store organizers will begin accepting applications December 2 from the first 60 families to be selected to shop. Applications will be accepted beginning Monday, December 2 and will be accepted Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the church’s office located at 305 South Woolfork Avenue.
Applicants will need to provide proof of residency in Seminole County, proof that the children live in your household and that they are of fifth grade age or younger. Each approved applicant will be given, on a first come, first served basis, an appointment time to shop on Friday, December 13 or Saturday, December 14. Store hours will be from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Friday, and from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Saturday.
Shoppers will be able to purchase a large toy or bike, a smaller toy, stocking stuffers and a warm item of clothing at a substantially reduced cost.
The store is in memory of Beth Capuson, a former Seminole County Family Connection Coordinator, Friendship United Methodist Church member and champion for those in need or less fortunate in the community.
