The Alternative Giving Fair is a fundraising event that St. Mark’s holds each year on Advent II that allows individuals to make donations to one or more charities in honor of friends or family members. A variety of organizations are represented. Your donations provide support to outreach organizations that feed people, provide social and health services to the homeless, provide free and temporary housing for patients receiving medical treatment, and those needing emergency services.
Thanks to your generosity, charities at the Alternative Giving Fair in 2015 received over $10,305. Your contributions make such a difference!
