Join us at Calvary's Corner Bookstore with special guest vendors at Christmas for a Cause. Make your dollars count for greater impact by buying gifts from non-profit guest vendors making a difference locally and globally. Plus, a portion of all Corner Bookstore proceeds will go to help clothe Syrian refugee children in need this Christmas.
