54th Needy Children Shopping Tour 2012                                         





                                    Dear Friends:



                                    We are pleased to announce that with the support of 1st Summit Bank and our area professionals this

                                    year’s NCST will take place on November 18, 2012 at JC Penney’s. 


                                    This event brings smiles to all involved.  The children not only get much needed winter clothing they also

                                    spend time with a special volunteer who helps them choose just the right sizes and styles.  They are also

                                    provided with a goody bag full of stocking stuffers, a book courtesy of the Learning Lamp and a present!  

                                    Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be there to visit with each child.  The children will write a Christmas card to

                                    be sent to their family along with a picture of them with Santa.  The evening will end with crafts for the children,

                                    Christmas music and special Christmas Smiley cookies.      


                                    Please help us make this year’s shopping tour a special day for these children who need it the most. The

                                    cost of sponsoring one child is $125.00. We would also be grateful for donations or items for the goody bags. 

                                    If you are able to help with sponsorship, your tax deductible donations can be made to

                                    NCST, PO Box 836, Johnstown, PA  15907 or by visiting our website at, www.  to donate on-line


                                    Happy Holidays,


                                    Connie Hobbs, President


                                    Throughout the last few years as President of NCST, I have met several successful local people who personally
