Save the date of Sunday, December 11 for the Alternative Gift Fair from 11:30am-1:00pm at the First Unitarian Society in Newton, 1325 Washington Street, West Newton. With the stress, expense, and expectation surrounding the holidays, it’s no wonder they more often exhaust rather than uplift us. It’s not too late to re-think your family routines. How does it work? When you make a donation to a specific charitable organization, you receive a card detailing your gift to give to your recipient. All proceeds go to the charitable organizations you select. A perfect opportunity to buy for those folks who have everything. Tax-deductible gifts start at $10.
