Alternative Gift Market
On December 3, OAR participated in the 16th Annual Alternative Gift Market at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Reston. The market offered opportunities for community and congregation members to support local charities by making donations in the names of those on thier Christmas and holiday shopping lists.
Gifts available for purchase from OAR included helping a client obtain identification for $10 and providing transportation resources for a client’s job search for $50.
Rev. Debra, church staff, and volutneers did a wonderful job of organizing the event. There was a steady stream of community members all day long looking to purcahse meaningful gifts that that would make their loved ones proud this holiday season. Nearly $1,000 was raised to support OAR.
OAR was pleased to be a part of this amazing event and we are looking forward to participating again in 2017
Thank you to everyone who selected OAR as they contemplated which organizations to support.
