A different kind of Christmas shopping!

The Alternative Gift Market gives you an opportunity to do a different kind of Christmas shopping! Shoppers have the opportunity to donate to charities and give a gift to someone really in need.

This Christmas, consider giving a different kind of gift, a gift that gives twice! Give to your loved one, a handmade beaded cross or nativity set, or a certificate for a week’s worth of clean water!

When you do, your gift helps someone in need – a hungry family, a struggling child, a Third World artisan. Your giving can transform the world!


November 4, 9:00am-12:00pm
