On December 4th, University Baptist & Brethren Church will hold their 40th annual Alternative Christmas Fair, which will be their first live and in-person event since 2019 and will coincide with UBBC’s 100th Anniversary!

On December 4th between 10:30 am and 2:00 pm you are invited to gather in UBBC’s Fellowship Hall and enjoy cider and cookies in a festive setting as you visit the many displays, talk to representatives of each charity, and choose your donations (payable by cash, check, or credit card). For people unable to be physically present, we will be open online for two weeks (December 4 – 18) to receive your gifts and pass them along to our 31 deserving charities.

Last year, the 39th annual UBBC Alternative Christmas Fair raised $43, 401 for 29 non-profits! Thank you for helping make last year’s entirely online Fair a huge success!
Make the season merrier by supporting the good work of these charities! See you at The Alternative Christmas Fair!
