November 13th, 2012 · Comments

If you’re looking for something a little more meaningful to give as holiday gifts this year, then you should check out the 3rd Annual Local Giving Fair at the Greenwood Senior Center on Saturday.

The fair brings together 20 non-profits that represent diverse needs such as shelter, safety, education, food and more. Attendees can find out more about each of these nonprofits, make a donation for an alternative holiday gift, and receive a card and impact statement to give as your gift.

Plus, there’ll be music and treats from the Upper Crust Catering.

The Local Giving Fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N. 85th St.
