History of Penguin Patch Holiday Shop

Jenny’s Penguin Patch Holiday Shop®, based out of Fort Worth, Texas, is a family-owned and operated business. As a former PTA/PTO President, Kay has over 25 years of experience helping schools create a unique shopping experience for the kids. The holiday shop is named after Kay’s daughter, Jenny who joined the family business in 2001.

Many years ago, Kay was running a holiday shop at Jenny’s school. She delighted in seeing the kids’ smiling faces as they secretly shopped for their friends and family. She set out to create an easier program with no counting of inventory in or out. Kay and Jennifer created a shop that specializes in a new variety of inexpensive gifts every year at kid-friendly prices. When designing our new product line each year, special attention is given to a large selection of matching personalized gifts that are unique, fun, and affordable for every child’s budget. We specialize in gifts for Mom, Dad, Grandparents, siblings, and more.

Dear Sponsor,

I am confident that you have found Jenny’s Penguin Patch to be an awesome opportunity for your school. Our Penguin Patch family is here to help you plan an EASY, STRESS-FREE, and SUCCESSFUL holiday shop. Our team will assist you with all shop aspects, so children can select the perfect gift at the perfect price in a safe in-school environment.

Our goal is to create a positive impact on elementary children and provide an easy-to-run service project for volunteers that can also functions as a fundraiser. Penguin Patch works on the honor system and you never have to count inventory. Even our online re-ordering system and shop-closing tools will make it easy for your volunteers.

Each spring, we have a focus group of children and moms to ensure that we are bringing children the best gifts at the lowest prices. Remember, our family is here to help make your job EASY! We look forward to your call.

Happy Shopping!
