Holiday shopping to benefit local charities!  It’s a win-win shopping event! 

Marcie Taylor of the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation of Shippensburg has organized the 12th Annual Christmas for Causes Holiday Craft/Gift Show. It is set for 6-9 p.m. Nov. 25 at Messiah UM Church (Fellowship Hall), 30 S. Penn St., Shippensburg, PA 17257.  

This event gives local shoppers a pre-Black Friday start to their holiday shopping while helping local charities and non-profit organizations.

A portion of all proceeds from the event will benefit causes designated by the crafters and other participants involved.  Last year’s show raised over $1,500 for local charities.
