Alternative Gift Market supports struggling families

Logan’s First Presbyterian Church is hosting the Alternative Gift Market Saturday, starting at 9 a.m. and continuing until 2 p.m. There will be a chance to browse through gifts and discover how your gift in the name of a family member or friend can be used to help struggling people to have sustainable lives.Pastor Corrine Tuhl, of the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, says it started in 1980 when California Sunday School teacher, Harriet Pritchard, wanted a more meaningful form of gift giving during the holiday season.”She helped them figure out a way that they could give money and the gifts would go to give gifts to people in developing countries, goats and chickens and such,” Tuhl explains. “So I could still give you a gift but it would be a card that said, ‘Seven chickens were given to a family in Honduras in your honor.'”Luncheon will be served Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the proceeds will go toward supplying the new church kitchen with needed equipment. The First Presbyterian Church is located at 178 W. Center, Logan.
