22nd Annual Alternative Christmas Fair
The holiday season is officially in full swing now, and that means the annual alternative Christmas fair.
Many non-profit organizations met at the Lincoln Park barn today for the fair, hoping to spread holiday cheer and represent their programs.
The Christmas fair has been taking place for 22 years now, and it's still better than ever with activities like face painting, musical performances, an animal petting zoo and of course lots and lots of food.
This year over twenty local and thirty both national and international non-profit organizations were represented at the fair, sharing information about their services they provide.
Julie Mamo, Executive Director of Grand Valley Peace and Justice said,
"Tis the reason for the season. We really are wanting to give non-profits the opportunity to talk about themselves, but also it's more about giving people the opportunity to give a gift that has real meaning.”
This year local non-profit organizations decorated their very own Christmas tree with a unique theme that represented their programs.
The trees will be used for a silent auction.
If you didn't get a chance to stop by the fair today, don't worry you still haven't missed your opportunity to reach out and help.
If you'd like to make a donation you have until December 14th to visit www.GVpeacejustice.org
