Two of North Carolina’s Ten Thousand Villages stores are offering shoppers the chance to give twice this holiday season. The stores in Greensboro and Cary are holding Shop for a Cause events to benefit the NC Council of Churches. A portion of the proceeds raised during designated shopping periods at each store will be donated to the Council to continue our work for unity, justice, and peace. Council staff and volunteers will host both events, so join us for the fellowship, as well.
Ten Thousand Villages is a network of fair trade stores, dealing directly with artisans around the world and selling their wares at prices that offer a fair wage. It connects individual entrepreneurs in developing countries with market opportunities in North America. Ten Thousand Villages has been associated with the Mennonite Central Committee for its entire history. Learn more about the stores here.
In Greensboro, shop Sunday, November 29 from 6 to 8 p.m.
In Cary (formerly the Cameron Village store), shop Sunday, December 13 from 3 to 5 p.m.
We are grateful to Ten Thousand Villages for their commitment to a more just and compassionate world.
