Give Different

Holiday gifts don’t always come wrapped in paper and tied with a bow. On Sunday, Nov. 15, the Federated Church is introducing an alternative way to give at a Mission Fair scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Parish House, 45 South Summer street, Edgartown. In addition to a presentation of the church’s various projects and missions, the fair will provide an opportunity to donate to a number of different charities, a more meaningful gift than yet another snowflake sweater.

Donors will receive a paragraph of information about their chosen charity and a greeting card to send to the family member or friend in whose name the donation was given. Charities included are located both here and abroad, both general in scope as well as highly specific in what products, services and developments are supported. For details, call 508-693-0094.
