Make a Difference with Gifts that Give Hope
Sep 29, 2015 10:16AM
Gifts that Give Hope—Lancaster’s eighth annual, alternative gift fair focused on supporting local and global non-profit organizations—will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., December 12, at the Farm and Home Center. This holiday event gives shoppers the opportunity to purchase gifts that benefit local and global charitable organizations, such as Heifer International, Music for Everyone, Reach Out and Read, Nurse Family Partnership, Habitat for Humanity, Girls on the Run and more.
Purchasing alternative gifts is an opportunity to give back and make a difference to the larger community while honoring friends and loved ones. Instead of giving traditional gifts, participants make meaningful donations to local and global non-profits on behalf of the recipient. In addition to alternative gifts, fair trade and social enterprise gifts, which go toward alleviating poverty locally and around the globe, will also be available. A number of food and beverage options from local eateries will be offered.
Organized by a committee of dedicated volunteers, Gifts That Give Hope has generated more than $175,000 for more than 50 local, national and global nonprofits.
