The Johnston Alternative Gift Market
Why get Uncle Bob yet another sweater he really doesn't need? Instead, honor those who have enough by giving to those who have too little by attending the 10th annual Johnston Alternative Gift market at St Paul on Saturday, December 2 from 10:00am till 2:00pm or “shopping” online at www.johnstonagm.org. This year we are celebrating a decade of giving over $100,000 of gifts to over 20 worthy charities! Find just the right gift for each person on your list as you shop from 21 international projects and seventeen local non-profits including:
Animal Rescue League of Iowa
Central Iowa Shelter and Services
Genesis Youth Foundation
Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity
Johnston Community Food Pantry Garden
Jungle Vine and Nature Bags
Legacy of Light
Many Hands Thrift Store
Ronald McDonald House of Des Moines
Rotary Club of Johnston
Veterans in Agriculture
Wings of Refuge
After you are done shopping you can check out with your credit card and take an informative insert describing the good each recipient's gift will be doing in the world! Place the insert in your Christmas- Holiday Card and you are ready to drop it in the mail! You'll feel great and so will your recipients! 100% of the proceeds from this event go to the charities! Online purchases can be made and inserts printed at www.johnstonagm.org.
