For more than 20 years, Athens-area faith organizations (including Oconee Street UMC) have hosted the Holiday Benevolence Market, offering a single location to select gifts – in the form of donations – that support local non-profit organizations. Kind-hearted shoppers can select symbolic gifts ranging from $5 to $150 and make a single payment at checkout (cash, check, or Square). All donations are tax-deductible.
This year’s market will be held in Fellowship Hall at First Presbyterian Church on Hancock Street from noon-2 pm on December 4. A light lunch will be served and musical entertainment will be provided by participating congregations.
