Every year the Outreach Committee of St. Barnabas sponsors an Alternative Market. This is a market where different neighborhood non-profit agencies provide price lists of items they need to help their clients. For example toothbrushes, a haircut, baby formula, etc. Parishioners who want to purchase Christmas gifts are then given the opportunity to purchase items. A lovely card is then given to them to present as a gift to a loved one.
