The Holiday Experience Everyone Deserves

Shop the Christmas Market at prices you can afford.

Good News Partners is hosting its 6th Annual Christmas Market on Saturday, December 9th from 10am-2pm at Gale Academy located at 1631 W. Jonquil Terrace. We know that the holidays are stressful and can be a financial burden on many families. The Christmas Market was created to bless individuals in the North of Howard area during the holiday season and gives families the joy of shopping for themselves at prices they can afford.


Participants will be able to purchase items at drastically reduced prices – either with cash or with “Jingle Bucks” earned through participation in various community volunteer activities. To complete the experience, there will be a café where shoppers can relax; enjoy or join in Christmas carols; a gift wrap station; photographers to capture the memories; and perhaps a visit from Santa Claus.

The Christmas Market is more than just shopping. It’s an experience! One of the participants at the inaugural Christmas Market described their experience as,“One of the best weekends of my life!” Volunteers have shared their delight in helping someone find the perfect gift for a loved one. “Christmas is not a season. It is a feeling,” Edna Ferber said.


We also invite those who are looking for ways to volunteer this holiday season to join us as well. To make all this possible, Good News Partners needs the generous support of our congregational and community partners like you. There will be gifts to purchase and sort, cookies to bake, wrapping paper and bows to donate, and payments to be recorded. Many hands are needed to organize and operate the Christmas Market. This is the perfect holiday volunteer opportunity for your congregation, co-workers, team or family. Those interested can register to volunteer here:
