Each year, Bountiful’s owner Jamie Merida and his staff transform the store into a holiday wonderland with an extravagant display of sparkling holiday decor, exquisite home accessories, unique toys, and elegant gifts. The selection is vast, creative, and provides area residents a head start on their shopping while helping to support the mission of a local nonprofit organization. According to Merida, this year’s theme – “A Very Viennese Christmas” – will replicate the glamor and opulence of fin-de-sielce Vienna.

Talbot Hospice Executive Director Vivian Dodge, said “We are so pleased and fortunate to have been designated as the beneficiary of Bountiful’s Holiday Kickoff again this year.  Over the past four years this event has raised close to $10,000 for our services and programs. We are beyond grateful for all that we are able to provide patients and their families, thanks to the generosity of Jamie and our community members.”

Previous Bountiful Holiday Kickoff events have benefitted the Women & Girls Fund of the Mid-Shore, the Humane Society of Talbot County, Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence, the Mental Heath Association of Talbot County, and the Community Alliance for the Performing Arts.  “My staff and I feel privileged to be able to provide an opportunity each year for the community to come out and support the work of these very important non-profit organizations,” said Merida.
