Toys & Candy On the Park is one of the retailers participating in Houstonu2019s 2019 Holiday Shopping Card event.

Kingwood-area residents looking to get a head start on holiday shopping while helping out a good cause can do so at four shops in Kingwood that are participating in Houston’s 2019 Holiday Shopping Card event. The Card event runs from Oct. 24-Nov. 3.

Each fall, more than 550 retailers in the Greater Houston area participate in this event, during which customers can enjoy 20% discounts and can give back by purchasing a $75 Holiday Shopping Card, 100% of proceeds from which will directly benefit the American Cancer Society. No other Lake Houston-area retailers are participating in the event, according to the full list of retailers.

In 2018, more than 9,000 Houstonians purchased the Holiday Shopping Card, and over the past 22 years, the women of VICTORY—a volunteer fundraising branch of the American Cancer Society—have raised more than $16.5 million through the program, according to the organization’s website.

In-person shopping is the focus of the Card event, but five online retailers are also participating this year. To see a list of participating online retailers, click here and then filter by "online/websites."
