Holiday Bazaar

In an effort to brighten the holidays for families starting over, InterAct hosts an annual Holiday Bazaar event.  For one weekend in December, our agency is transformed into a store, where parents may “shop” to choose toys and gifts for their children – and children can choose gifts for their parent, too.  A photographer takes family photos in front a festive backdrop, children have an opportunity to wrap their gifts, and the air is full of holiday spirit.


We’re serving more than DOUBLE the amount of families this year than we did at last year’s event. That means we’re in GREAT need of the following items, by the end of THIS WEEK to help make the holidays special for more than 600 children, teens and parents in crisis:

1. Gift Cards (i.e. Walmart or Target) for teens age 13 and older.

2. Toys for girls and boys between the ages of newborn and 12 years old, with the biggest need for toys for girls and boys between 7-12.

3. Holiday wrapping supplies.

New, unwrapped gifts only.  Please, no violent toys.


A wishlist can be found at Amazon Smile.

All donations for the Holiday Bazaar can be dropped off at InterAct – 1012 Oberlin Road, Raleigh.  Let us know when you plan to come to ensure we have enough staff and volunteer support to help you bring in your donations.
