Alternative Gift Sales/Outreach Ministry Faire – Sunday, Dec. 11

Date: December 5, 2016
Time: 10:00 am

Join us on Sunday, December 11 in the sidewalk and patio area of Good Sam during the Outreach Ministry Faire and see the Alternative Gifts for Christmas Gift ideas on sale on December 11th.

Are you looking for a meaningful gift for someone this year that also helps others? At the upcoming Outreach Ministry Fair on December 11th there will be several opportunities to purchase products that benefit specific non-profits.

These opportunities, and who will benefit, are listed below so you can plan to bring your checkbook and/or cash.

H & H Chili Mix and Salsa Seasoning – These easy to use spice mixes will be a welcome gift for the cooks on your list. The chili mix will be used for the Advent Chili Lunch on December 4th so you can taste it then. The salsa mixes will be available for sampling on Dec 11th.

The proceeds from the sale of these mixes will go towards the purchase of blinds for the west wall in Roetter Hall.

Soup and Dip Mixes – These delicious soup and dip mixes have been available at Good Sam many times.

Proceeds go to The Tomorrow Project which provides employment for women. It is a part of Catholic Charities in San Diego.

Jewelry and wood carvings – New to Good Sam, but known to Rev. Janine through her previous church, the sale of these products will benefit African Team Ministries. This group serves orphans and refugees in Africa.
