Kris: The More Technical Side

For many years, CCPC has offered the Alternative Christmas Market as a way for us to help worthy charitable organizations and, at the same time, shop for those hard-to-shop-for people on our lists. 

This year (2020!) the Alternative Christmas Market is virtual. ‚ÄčThank you for taking the time to browse the organizations which CCPC has chosen to benefit from our donations. Please watch the videos, below, and read about the organizations you can help. On Christmas, your loved ones will feel rewarded by knowing that your (virtual) gift to them is helping others.  

To listen to an organization's video, click on the name.  To visit their website for more info, click on the logo/icon to the left of the name. Once you've browsed, proceed to check out.  Those instructions are below the table of organizations.  Click on the Checkout form to download a copy to your computer or device. You may pay online via CCPC's donation portal, or write a check.  Send a check to the church, along with your filled-out form!

Thank you for taking the time for this valuable cause.  We are happy we can still offer this way to help local organizations, even if we can't set up in Dodds Hall, as usual!

II. The Checkout form
         Enter your dollar choices on the form.
Only one amount per organization.
This year you decide what to tell your family or loved ones what gift they 'got'. If you donated to Mission Housing Projects, perhaps five boxes of nails, or roof shingles. You designate how much, and the organization will receive it, no matter what you tell your loved ones!
We had to simplify it this year; no specific items for the organizations; just an amount.
It can do the  math for you, if you wish!
