The cost is a good will offering which will be donated to the pantry.

ALTERNATIVE GIFT MARKET is on Saturday, November 10, from 11:00 to 4:00, at University Congregational Church.  The Market is a unique opportunity to “buy” a gift in honor of a family member/friend. At the same time, your gift is helping to alleviate poverty, hunger, and injustice around the world. Over 30 projects will be represented and, no doubt, one of them will earn your support. Our UCC Women’s Guild will be selling breakfast, lunch, and homemade baked goods. All proceeds benefit the Alternative Gift Market. So come hungry, shop the market, and stay for breakfast and lunch.

ALTERNATIVE GIFT MARKET VOLUNTEERS NEEDED on Saturday, November 10 for a 2 hour shift between 9:45-4:00 pm. We need hostesses/hosts or you may choose to work at the Hygiene Pantry booth. From 4:15-6:15 pm, we need help taking down tables and setting up for Sunday morning service. Please contact Cyndi Richter at 461-4148, or at ccrichter@cox.net.
