Holiday shopping doesn't have to mean buying more stuff for family and friends. It can mean honoring those on your shopping list with a gift of hope - from the Red Cross.

For as little as $20, you can make a donation for Red Cross services and touch the lives of people - servicemen and women and families devastated by disaster.

All gifts capture the spirit of the season by giving help and hope when it matters most.

A card for the gift recipient tells what the donation means to those who receive Red Cross services.

The HOPE Store is at the Arizona Center, 400 E. Van Buren St., and helps raise money for Red Cross service to the armed forces, families affected by disaster and preparedness training.

The store is open through Dec. 24, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
