HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Give a donation and save a life -- that’s the
concept of the Alternative Gifts International market.
The market -- which will be held three Sundays in December at First
United Methodist Church -- is an alternative to flea markets.
Instead of buying goods, a shopper can make a donation in the name of
a friend or relative to one of many nonprofit groups featured at the
market. In return, the giver receives a card to send to their loved one
telling them about the donation.
Work done by the featured organizations ranges from feeding the hungry
in the United States to assisting literacy programs in Senegal.
The market will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday and Dec. 12
and 19 at First United Methodist Church, 700 N. Glenoaks Blvd.
