Thank you for successful Fair Trade Sales

The Mission Awareness Committee gives grateful thanks to the APC family and our Preschool families for their interest and purchases of “alternative gifts” this 2016 Christmas season.  APC was able to provide Equal Exchange $183 (provides fair wages and working conditions to workers in developing countries), Zatoun Olive Oil and Za’atar spice packs raised $377 to help support Palestinian farmers and to help bring peace to the Holy Land; Pal Craftaid received $434 (sale of skillfully wrought olivewood and embroidered crafts bring needed income to Palestinian artisans) and Presbyterian Mission Agency Giving Catalog opportunities provided $330 towards projects that make a life-changing difference in lives by providing families with chickens, water filters, fuel oil for refugees, etc.  In addition, quite a few folks took Presbyterian Giving catalogs home and were going to give online.  Our 2016 total: $1,324.
