An Update from Our Junior Board

Megha and I volunteered on Sunday, December 6 for a MarketPlace sale at St. Matthews church in Evanston. We arrived to set up during the congregation’s lunch hour after service. During the sale, we had a great time sharing with community members the story behind MarketPlace — how it is a nonprofit fair trade organization which benefits women artisans in Mumbai. We helped customers pick out accessories, clothing and home interior goods. Tablecloths, scarves and jewelry were particularly popular. Overall, it was a great experience being able to help people find gifts for themselves and for loved ones for the holiday season.
