The ninth annual Gifts that Give Hope alternative gift fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., December 10, at the Farm and Home Center (Penn State Cooperative Extension), Lancaster, where attendees can purchase gifts that support the work of charitable organizations and give back to the local, regional and international community. The fair features alternative gifts, fair-trade items and items made locally by social enterprise employees, including Light on a Hill Candles, Revolution leather products, Stroopies, Upohar and more.
With a focus on celebrating Human Rights Day, which coincides with the day of the fair, other features include hands-on activities for all ages, and the chance to win a free copy of the book We Are All Born Free: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Pictures, published by Amnesty International.
All purchases go toward making a difference. People can also connect with like-minded individuals in the community, and learn about volunteering opportunities and other initiatives to combat poverty, end hunger, fight child abuse and human trafficking/exploitation and more.
