Holiday Shopping for a Cause

Posted on Oct 10, 2017 in Church News, Community Center, News & Events, Outreach

Want to get a head start on your Christmas Shopping

Looking for a unique gift?

Want to treat yourself?

Men, do you need a special something, for the woman, in your life?

 

We have the answer!  Come to a “Holiday Shopping for a Cause” event, sponsored by the Women’s Christian Fellowship of Central Schwenkfelder Church.  The event will be held at the Central Community Center, on Friday, December 1, from 6 – 9 PM and Saturday, December 2, from 10 AM – 2 PM.  There will be many items to purchase, including blown glass ornaments, jewelry, cards, scarves, purses, bookmarks, toys & clothing, in all price ranges.  Purchases can be taken home that day.  All of the proceeds will go to Women AtRisk, International, which is an organization that rescues women and children from human traffickers in 45 countries around the world and in the U.S., providing them with safe shelter.  They are trained to work with dignity, while being presented with the hope of Christ.  All the items at the fundraiser are made, by these women, and support the work of Women At Risk, International.  The cost is $300 per month to house a person in a safe house.  Since 2012, Central has contributed over $25,932 to WAR, supporting 86 at risk individuals in safe houses for one month.  If you would like to support WAR but are unable to attend the event, cash or check donation will be accepted at the display table in Fellowship Hall on November 26 or can be given to Phyllis Anders or Portia Potts.
