6th Annual Johnston Alternative Gift Market Will Be Here Before You Know It!!
St Paul is pleased to be sponsoring the Sixth Annual Johnston Alternative Gift Market on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 10:00 to 2:00. Each year we anticipate over 125 "shoppers" who will experience the joy of honoring those who have enough by giving to those who have too little.
Last year we raised $15,054 for worthy causes!! The breakdown is: $10,528 for local mission organizations, $3,403 for Alternative Gifts International, and the rest for St. Paul Youth Mission Trip (Kitchen donations) and Many Hands 4 Haiti craft sales! Our best year ever! You can find many pictures from the day here.
Our 2018 participants included:
Animal Rescue League of Iowa
Central Iowa Shelter and Services
Count the Kicks
Genesis Youth Foundation
Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity
