Retail stores are already gearing up for the holiday rush, including the Old Stone House in Morgantown.
The gift shop donates 10 percent of sales to local charities as part of its Charity Partner Program.
This week, 10 percent of sales will go to the Morgantown Area Meals on Wheels.
The Service League at the Old Stone House has donated more than $13,000 since the program started in 2008.
Not only is it a way to augment the giving but it has also helped the public to connect the dots and realize that shopping at the historic gift shop makes a difference in bettering their own local community and helping a wide variety of Mon County Charities.
The Gift Shop will hold a Holiday Open House the first weekend in November.
