Holiday Emporium

For donating items and your time for this years Holiday Emporium! It was a great success.

Thank-you to all our PAC volunteers who organized a fun event.


  Annual Holiday Emporium

Friday, Dec. 13th, 2019 @ 9:00am to 3:30pm

A fun & independent holiday shopping experience for SJD students that promotes reducing, reusing and recycling.

The Emporium provides students with an opportunity to purchase inexpensive, gently used items as gifts for family members. Parents, extended family, and staff donate items for sale and all gifts will be wrapped with donated and recyclable material. Students will be able to purchase 2 gifts each, with an opportunity to purchase more at the end of the day (inventory permitting, these gifts will not be wrapped). All unsold items will be donated to charity. No item will cost more than $5.00.  But in order to make this event a success, we need your help!


Start cleaning out your basements and closets:

Donations will be received at the school office during school hours beginning Monday, December 2 through to Dec 12 – the earlier the better so that we can sort & price.


– Items must be clean and in good condition; ask yourself: would you be comfortable wrapping it and giving it to someone?

– Acceptable items include: items for children & adults, toys, games, puzzles (electronic toys would be operational with working batteries, games & puzzles must not be missing pieces), books, household & kitchen items, jewelry & accessories, audio and video media, sports equipment, office supplies, gift for Dads & Grandpas;

– Sorry, but we are not able to accept: stuffed toys, fast food restaurant toys, clothing (other than scarves, gloves & ties, but no hats), textbooks, magazines, VHS or cassette tapes, and very large items (unless they are in their own box, otherwise we can’t wrap them).


– May have been previously used, but must be in good condition;

– Name-tags, wrapping & tissue paper, fabric, gift bags, newsprint, craft paper, bubble wrap, fabric, ribbon, plastic bags, tape, and gift boxes, etc.


We need lots of volunteers to make this event happen!
