THE HOLIDAY STORE RE-OPENS AS THE UNDER THE TREE HOLIDAY DRIVE

The Holiday Store was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic and VMC is excited to announce a significant change with VMC’s Holiday Store in 2021!

 

The Holiday Store will reopen this year as the Under the Tree Holiday Drive. In past years the Holiday Store focused on children and families in our community, Under the Tree has a different focus in 2021 and moving forward in upcoming years. Since VMC’s mission is to end and prevent homelessness in Knoxville, Under the Tree will focus on serving those that are either working to achieve housing through VMC’s low barrier housing focused emergency overnight shelter, The Foyer or have achieved their goal of housing at VMC’s Permanent Supporting Housing development, Minvilla Manor.

 

Once items are collected, they may be dropped off by December 17th, 2021 at VMC’s main office at 511 N Broadway, Knoxville, TN 37917 Monday through Thursday 8am – 5pm and Friday 8am – 3pm. When items are dropped off, please specify that they are for the Under the Tree Holiday Drive.

 

If you need additional materials or have any questions, just call or email Zan Schriver at 865.524.3926 x222 or zschriver@vmcinc.org. If I can answer any questions or provide further information, please just let me know!

Sweatpants and shirts
