'Tis the Season

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to announce that, with the support of 1ST SUMMIT BANK and our Area Business Professionals, the 56th Annual Needy Children Shopping Tour (NCST) will take place on Sunday, November 23, 2014 at JCPenney.

The NCST is an organization that helps children in Johnstown and the surrounding area. Many children in our community do not have coats, boots, or even hats and gloves to keep them warm during the winter season. The children who attend this event will not only get much needed winter clothing, they will also spend time with our volunteers who will help them choose the right sizes and styles.

JCPenney has once again agreed to work with our dedicated volunteers to bring a smile and warm clothing to the children. With Christmas just around the corner, Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive to give each child a present. Goody bags full of stocking-stuffers will be provided, the Learning Lamp will give a book to each child, and the evening will end with the children making a craft project and enjoying cookies. 

Thank you for your support!

Please help us to make this year's shopping tour a special day for these children who need it most. The cost of sponsoring one child is $125.00. We would also be grateful for donations or items for the goody bags.

Please know that everyone in the organization is a volunteer and that over 98% of the donations go directly to the children.

Donations can also be mailed to :
