Child care available for last-minute shoppers

Parent volunteers from the Allentown Co-op Christian Preschool will hold a child-care fund-raiser that will allow grownups to do some last-minute Christmas shopping or just stay at home to wrap gifts away from the watchful eyes of their inquisitive youngsters. The preschool’s parents will watch children ages 2-5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 18 at the Allentown United Methodist Church, 23 Church St., Allentown. Crafts and snacks will be provided. The cost is $15 per child. For more information or to register, call Michelle, (609) 723-5388, or e-mail before Dec. 11.
