This coming Wednesday, December 18 from 12 – 4 pm Heartside neighbors will have the opportunity to shop and pay for reduced cost Christmas gifts and winter essentials at Degage’s Christmas Store event. Degage believes that when neighbors have the opportunity to purchase their own gifts and essentials, it will build confidence and responsibility versus receiving free gifts.

Degage is in need for financial or gift item donations for the store, but the deadline for those donations is today, Monday, December 9th.  All unwrapped donations should be dropped off at Degage, 144 Division Ave. South.

Items Degage is still looking to have donated include items for men, such as socks, scarves, hats, etc. They also need more small appliances and household items, such as radios, clocks, toasters and blenders. A full list of donation items and more information about the store can be found by CLICKING HERE.  Financial donations can be made online at
