Alternative Gift Fair
Fun, festivity and holiday shopping the generous way – buy alternative gifts that honor family and friends while helping those in need. All money donated for gifts goes to the participating local, national, and international charities. Sample gifts include a nutritious school meal for indigenous children in Guatemala, a Four Day College Visit for One Girl or a preventive well-woman exam. Each charity will be represented by its own staff and volunteers eager to share their message and stories.
Bring the whole family. A special supervised Kids Corner will be provided with staff to entertain your children while you shop or get a free massage. “Eat one/Share one” cookie decorating for kids to decorate and donate cookies to the food pantry. The event also features free seated massage, live music by local performers, and tons of great raffle prizes contributed by local businesses and this year a sweet and savory bake sale with a contest for best bake sale item.
Note: Payments by cash or check and this year credit cards will be accepted and paid for by AGGW so 100% of YOUR DOLLARS will still go to the organizations. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Location: Takoma Park Presbyterian Church. 310 Tulip Avenue.
