Tha Antigonish Gift Book is an initiative of the Social Justice Committee of St. James United Church. The Gift Book was first published in December 2010 and arose out of two discussions that were taking place at the Committee- the desire to support local charitable organizations and the need to provide an alternative to the materialism that is prevalent around gift-giving at Christmas.
After a very positive launch in the first year and supportive feedback from the organizations highlighted the book was expanded in 2011 to include more organizations. The Social Justice Committee launched the fifth edition in December 2014. The resource promotes gift giving in the form of donations to charities in and around the Antigonish area including the St. James Hot Meal Program. Copies are available in the church office as well as the People’s Place Library and other locations around Antigonish.
