It’s a chance for your holiday shopping to build a better community! Find the perfect gift for anyone on your list at the 11th Annual Alternative Gift Fair. Isn’t it about time you enjoyed a relaxing, rejuvenating, and joyful shopping experience? Instead of browsing shelves, shoppers will browse through tables of charities. Each table will be staffed with a knowledgeable volunteer or staff member waiting to answer questions about missions, programs, or participants. Purchase outdoor experiences for area classrooms, art supplies for after-school programs or food for needy animals. It’s a great way to tailor your gift to your loved one’s favorite cause!
The site sales will include:
- A great variety of organizations- perfect for everyone on your list (see list below)
- Calligraphers to put the finishing touches on your “gift card”
- Gifts prepared in boxes and bows (or mail-ready envelopes) while you wait
- Sustainable ideas for the holidays and beyond
- Great live holiday music
- Refreshments for everyone!
Gifts come complete with certificate of donation, information about the selected organization, reusable box, and ribbon. Best of all, you’ll be doing more than finishing your list…you’ll be contributing to the health and success of our community.
