CTS will be having its annual SERRV fair trade sale on November 26 and December 3 after service in the narthex. Come check out high quality, fairly traded gift and home items and CHOCOLATE! Your purchase empowers the low-income artisans and farmers who create each item. These beautiful gifts have stories behind them—of an artisan or farmer receiving a fair wage for their work, sending their children to school often for the first time, and saving income for a healthy future. Proceeds also help fund health projects, environmental protection programs, and other local programs that transform communities.
· Check out the photos, videos, and stories at serrv.org/artisanstories to learn about these artisans!
· There will be some beautiful new ceramic and clay nativity figurines—your purchase of these will support artisans in Peru, which was hit by devastating mud slides last spring following the worst floods there in almost 30 years.
