The Benevolence Market offers an alternative holiday giving experience. Instead of engaging in a traditional gift exchange with friends and family, you can come to the Market and meet representatives from approximately 30 local, non-profit agencies (the Athens Land Trust, Project Safe, and the Athens Area Humane Society, for example). The Benevolence Market offers excellent holiday shopping as well as supports local efforts to make Northeast Georgia a better, more welcoming place.
Patrons are given a “shopping list” that includes all of the agencies represented and items that can be “purchased.” The list includes a range of prices. For example, a shopper might buy a box of nails for $10 that will be used in building a Habitat for Humanity house. Or, for $100, a child can be sent to the Extra Special People summer camp for a week.

Community Christmas -- How Can You Help?
Catherine Drewry has Christmas wish lists for children living in poverty. Please contact her at email@example.com or 706-201-7241 if you would like to “adopt” a child. The suggested amount to spend is $75-100. You may also make a monetary donation, and our youth group will do the shopping for you! Make checks payable to “Community Christmas” and give to Catherine or mail to 143 Bowen Farm Rd., Crawford, GA 30630, or donate by credit card or pay pal at www.communitychristmasoglethorpe.org. All gifts are due by December 11th, and can be turned in at St. Gregory’s in All Saints Chapel in the Christian Education building.
