Even though corporate giants made people work on Thanksgiving Day so some of us could drop our turkey legs and get to shopping, there are better things in life than getting a deal on an XBox. As much as we may love the piles of gifts under our trees, the happy expressions of our elated children, or a glass too many of whiskey-infused egg nog, we can’t forget the importance of giving to those people whose needs exceed our own desires for the latest fashions or gadgets.
From December 5 – 9, The River Region Alternative Gift Fair offers opportunities for online charitable giving. Diverse options for buying include hygiene supplies for an inmate or a homeless person, supplies for school gardens, and after-school snacks for children in a domestic abuse shelter.
Please support this worthwhile effort to help people in central Alabama.
