The event is free and open to the public. Attendees will enjoy holiday music, gift raffles, and the annual toy giveaway for every child in attendance. Parents too will be given a special gift. Wayman’s women’s ministry, is expected to collect and wrap about 100 shoe boxes filled with toiletry and personal care items for men and women who attend the event with their children.
