Rochester Area Jaycees Will Sponsor Annual Shopping Tour on Saturday, December 10th

The Rochester Area Jaycees will once again sponsor the Christmas Shopping Tour community event on Saturday, December 10th, 2011. The event would not be possible without the generous donations of local businesses and community leaders.

Each year the Rochester Area Jaycees team up with the Rochester Area Neighborhood House and the Older Persons’ Commission to offer an unforgettable day for children in the Greater Rochester Area.

The day will begin at Meijer in Rochester Hills where the children will be paired up with a volunteer to shop for family members. After the shopping is finished, the children are transported to the Older Persons’ Commission for a Christmas party where they will wrap gifts, play games, work on crafts and enjoy a pizza lunch donated by Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett.

“We are very thankful for the local businesses and community leaders who have stepped up once again this year to provide this experience for children in our community,” said Rochester Area Jaycees President and Event Co-Chair Julia Webber. “Our organization is looking forward to an outstanding event on December 10th.”
