We have joined the PCUSA Project -
Equal Exchange (EE). The Outreach Committee has facilitated a new and ongoing relationship to support Equal Exchange. We will redirect our coffee spending to this effort and will be serving EE coffee, teas and products at Church functions. Maybe you will consider redirecting some of your spending as well. Christmas is the time of entertaining and gift giving. Do you see the purchase of coffee, tea, or chocolate in your immediate future? Would you like to buy high quality organic scrumptious products? If you are going to buy these items anyway, why not purchase them through The Shallowford Presbyterian and PCUSA Project - Equal Exchange. These products are carefully sourced directly from small-scale farmers as part of a more equitable and sustainable alternative supply chain. Not only will we be buying top quality products, we will be supporting small scale farming, AND $0.15/pound of purchase will go to the PCUSA small farmer fund as well. It is a win-win -win. Stop by our display, look at the fabulous choices, learn more and give it prayerful consideration!
