Celebrate Christmas in July


Sure, it's still hot (and rainy!) this summer in Knoxville, but you can get in the holiday mood right now with Emerald's Christmas in July event.

We're celebrating Christmas in July through Friday, July 27, by seeking new gifts and financial contributions for our annual Christmas Store.

Parents of more than 400 city children and teens who are connected to Emerald Youth will have the opportunity to purchase gifts at a deeply discounted rate in December, providing families an affordable way to celebrate the holidays, while selecting just the right gifts.

Supporting the store is easy:

  • Buy a gift(s) online via Amazon and Walmart wish lists created specifically for the Emerald Youth Christmas Store at emeraldyouth.org/Christmas and have them shipped directly to Emerald’s office.
  • Make a financial donation at emeraldyouth.org/Christmas
  • Purchase a new, unwrapped gift and drop it off at one of the following collection locations through 5 p.m. July 27: Emerald Youth Foundation, 1014 Heiskell Avenue or the Watershed Building on the campus of Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church, 9132 Kingston Pike.

For more information, visit emeraldyouth.org/Christmas or follow @EmeraldYouth on Twitter and Facebook.
