Make Christmas Bright


How do you make a child’s Christmas Bright?

What is an Angel Tree?  It is a holiday assistance program in which an individual sponsor or group sponsor/organization/corporation purchases new toys for a deserving child (or “Angel”) or a food gift card for seniors in need. For many, the gifts they receive through the Angel Tree Program will be the only ones they open on Christmas morning.
Last year alone we registered 1,000+ families, over 3,443 children, and 285 seniors who would not experience the magic of Christmas without the generosity of people in our community.
It will take an entire army this Christmas to deliver the nearly 19,000 toys to the neediest children and provide for our seniors.
If you believe, every child and every senior deserves to experience the joy of Christmas please support us this Christmas!
Our partners who will be hosting public angel trees will be at the following locations from November 13th – December 8th:
News & Record at 200 E Market
Whole Foods at Friendly
Morehead Foundry
Our Christmas Stockings can be registered for here OR picked up and returned at any Chick Fila.   Christmas Stockings can also be picked up / returned at The Salvation Center of Hope at 1311 S Eugene Street, Monday-Friday, from 9:30am to 4:30pm.
We ask all gifts, stockings, and gift cards be returned unwrapped by December 1st.

Jomeokee Marketplace set for Oct. 21

The first annual Jomeokee Marketplace is set to have 125 venders on Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Artisans are coming together to provide an array of rustic gifts, furniture, and home decor at the Jomeokee Marketplace on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
“This is our first year and we’re really excited about it. We already have 125 vendors and the location at Jomeokee Park is just beautiful. It’s 100 acres with a wonderful view of Pilot Mountain,” said organizer Elaine Mounce.
Since retiring from R.J. Reynolds, Mounce and her husband spend much of their time attending auctions and perusing antiques.
“We’ve just sat and watched all of these pop-up sales over the years. There are some really large sales around us, but we wanted to bring it closer to home so we decided to put this together,” she said.
Mounce said the event originally was planned to feature antiques, collectibles, vintage, repurposed furniture and crafts but has grown to include popular retail products, entertainment, and food trucks.
“I think people are going to appreciate that we have 30 picnic tables so you can shop, take a break and have some lunch and then start up again. You can bring a blanket and have a picnic as well.”
Along with stellar shopping, Mounce said the day-long event will offer face painting and games for children. Jomeokee Marketplace is also pet-friendly and will have vendors selling pet treats and clothes.
“I’m looking forward to the event and I’m really looking forward to shopping,” Mounce said. “We have such a great variety of vendors. We have some of our hometown folks who will bring their pottery and paintings and others who are coming from Reidsville, Lexington, and Charlotte.”
Mounce said there will be something for everyone.
“My goal for the day is for people to enjoy their time with friends and family, mark a few things off their Christmas list, and leave with a little something for themselves.”
For more information about Jomeokee Marketplace visit their Facebook page or email theoldbarnmarket@yahoo.com. Jomeokee Park is located at 1140 Pace’s Place Rd. in Pinnacle. The event is free and parking is $5.
