Alternative Christmas Bazaar

Rocky River Presbyterian Church will host the 14th Annual Alternative Christmas Charity Bazaar on Sunday, November 19, 2023 from 11:30 a.m.—1:00 p.m. The public is welcome at this charity-sharing event. Come learn about and visit over 17 charities and 1 Fair Trade businesses in one place. Donations to the charities at the Alternative Christmas Charity Bazaar are financial contributions to non-profit missions given as “Christmas presents” in honor of family and friends. — Volunteer opportunities are available to those interested. For more information, contact Anne Busher.

How does it work?

At the bazaar, visit booths where representatives for each charity will be present to explain their services. Select one or several charities to make your cash (or check) donation to and receive a custom-designed greeting postcard with a description of the gift’s ministry. Donate to one charity or to all! The cards can then be given to your family, or friends telling about the charitable gift selected by you and given in their honor! 100% of all donations go directly to the charity and your gifts will be tax deductible.
