Planning an Alternative Holiday Fair
Out of ideas for a Christmas or birthday present for those folks who really do have everything? Want the words “It’s the thought that counts” to be really meaningful this Mother’s or Father’s Day? Looking for a Valentine’s gift that says love in many ways, many times over?
Plan an Alternative Holiday Fair for your congregation or organization as a perfect alternative to store-bought gifts. It’s easy, personal, and there are no crowded malls or stores. And it's a great way to support the work of Church World Service!
