The Junior League of Gainesville will host the Miracle on Main Street event on Dec. 7, 2019. In its 29th year, this event benefits families in the community who might not otherwise have gifts for their children over the holidays. By partnering with 22 local agencies, we offer a unique shopping experience in Santa’s Workshop to support families in need for the holiday season. Last year, we served over 150 families, including more than 450 children, and as many families are expected again this year.
WHO: This is an invitation-only event for families in need. The invitations are distributed by local agencies. The media and League members are encouraged to attend as well.
WHAT: This charitable holiday event is to assist members of the community that need a little extra help around the holidays. Community members along with Junior League of Gainesville members donate funds to help the League purchase new toys and bikes. Invited families are invited to shop in the warehouse as a way to bring some Christmas cheer to their holiday season.
WHEN: Dec. 7, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
WHERE: Friends of the Library Alachua County Library District, 430-B N. Main Street, Gainesville, Fla. 32601
