YWCA needs donations for kids Christmas bazaar

BAR HARBOR — The YWCA of Mount Desert Island will hold its annual Children’s Christmas Bazaar on Saturday, Dec. 13. The event is designed for children in grades K-4 so they can shop for gifts to give to their family members at Christmas.

Each year, about 100 children come looking for that perfect present. They look forward to being here, and are always so proud of the gifts they have chosen “all by themselves.”

The items that the children purchase are donated by local businesses and individuals. Business owners, as you go through your inventory this season, consider a donation of gift items for us to offer “for sale” for prices ranging from 25 cents to $5.

The YWCA is a nonprofit organization, and your donations will be tax deductible. You may drop them off at our building on Mount Desert Street Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or call us, and we will gladly pick them up. Donor businesses’ names will be displayed for parents to see to encourage local holiday shopping.
