MORRISTOWN, NJ-- The Tenth Annual Christmas Craft Market benefiting two Morristown-based charities operating in Africa will be held in Assumption Church’s Rauscher Hall, 91 Maple Avenue, Morristown, on Saturday, December 7, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, December 8, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is no admission fee, and there is free parking in the lot behind the church at the entrance to the hall.
Market visitors will have an opportunity to complete some holiday shopping while supporting two worthy charities. Africa Surgery brings medical doctors and patients together in Sierra Leone to address life-threatening spinal surgeries in young children. The Village Angels of Tanzania employs at-risk local youths to make weekly food deliveries to isolated, abandoned, elderly poor.
The Market features a variety of vendors. Shoppers will find fine art photography and notecards, authors’ signed books, and Christmas Treasury Books for Children. Decorative items include cross-stitch angels and tree ornaments, Christmas wreaths, and holiday decorations. Items suitable for gifting include Pampered Chef items, table runners, knitted blankets and infant/babywear, handsewn felt animals, jewelry, and a variety of stocking stuffers. There will also be authentic African handicrafts from Tanzania and Sierra Leone. A bake sale table will offer home-baked Christmas cookies, cakes, and pies. All vendors donate between 20% and 100% of their Market revenues to the fundraiser.
Africa Surgery, Inc. and The Village Angels of Tanzania, Inc. are both registered 501( c )3 not-for-profit organizations.
