The Kirkland Interfaith Network is inviting the community to its annual Alternative Gift Fair.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 4 and noon to 2 p.m. on Nov. 5 in the Parish Hall at Holy Family Catholic Church, 7045 120th Ave. N.E. in Kirkland.

The gift fair is a holiday fair where each gift purchased provides a better life for someone who needs it, stateside or abroad.

The fair will feature tables selling “alternative” gifts — donations made to an organization in the name of a person the gift giver might normally give a material gift.

An alternative gift might be a flock of chicks for a family in Bolivia, a window for a unit of affordable housing or a blanket to warm a refugee in a camp. For each item purchased, attendees receive a gift card with an insert describing their gift, which they can give to their recipient.

There will be a variety of local, national and international organizations at the fair, working to provide short-term relief for those in need and long-term development assistance to address the underlying causes of hunger and poverty.
