The NEEDY CHILDREN'S SHOPPING TOUR is a Non-Profit organization that has taken thousands of children shopping for warm clothing every November for over 60 years.  We provide the children in our community with an extraordinary evening that they can cherish for a lifetime!


This organization began with the Greater Johnstown Jaycee’s and has continued to support our community. Many children in the Greater Johnstown area do not have coats, boots, or even hats and gloves to keep them warm during the winter season. The children who attend this event are treated to an evening of shopping with our team of dedicated volunteers who will spend time helping them choose the right sizes and styles. After shopping, the children are surprised by a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, a snack, and a craft to make and take home to their families.
The NCST raises funds year-round in order to make each shopping tour a special day for children who need it the most. The cost of sponsoring a child is $125.00. Please visit our HOME page for more information on how you can make a tax deductible contribution today.
