On November 11, 2017, we will open the doors to our 22nd Annual Christmas Market! Last year’s Christmas Market raised over $11,000. Shoppers at our Christmas Market are introduced to local, national and international nonprofits. Each participating organization hosts a festive holiday booth which affords them the opportunity to educate our community about their organization’s services, to recruit new volunteers and to fund raise in ways in keeping with the holiday spirit. Each organization provides a “shopping list” that reflects how your dollars will be used to benefit their clients. Shoppers may choose between simply giving donations to a participating organization or purchasing the tangible gifts with which an organization has stocked their booth. No matter which organization shoppers decide to support, one hundred percent of their donations go directly to the nonprofit(s) they designate. The nonprofit participants for the 2017 Annual Christmas Market include:
