Alternative Gift Fair

The Alternative Gift Fair is a great way to give a meaningful gift to friends and family, and learn about nonprofits operating in our community. This holiday season, make a donation to a charity on behalf of someone, and give a gift that keeps giving! Help create a lasting impact in the lives of others, and support the organizations that work hard every day to help our most vulnerable citizens. 

Each participating charity at the fair offers a variety of gift options ranging in prices starting as low as $10. Shoppers will receive gift certificates and inserts that identify their donations to give to their loved ones. 

The Alternative Gift Fair has raised thousands of dollars for both local and international organizations operating in our community over the past few years. We want to thank the following organzations for participating this year:

Allan Brooks Nature Centre Society 
Canadian Mental Health Association Vernon And District Branch
Community Dental Access Centre
