Work of Human Hands Sale

One of our students, Danielle Davis, was on the local morning show to talk about the Work of Human Hands Sale we hold annually here at St. Mary's.
The Social Justice Committee of St. Mary’s Catholic Center in College Station is sponsoring a Work of Human Hands international handcrafts sale on the weekend of December 4 and 5. Work of Human Hands is a partnership between Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and SERRV International that buys and provides a market for high quality, fairly traded handcrafts and gourmet food items from low-income producers all over the world. This means that the people who produce them earn a fair price, get access to credit and training, and other forms of community support to improve their lives. By purchasing handmade items, you will help provide dignity, hope and income to poor families around the globe, and you get something beautiful in return!
Last year we were able to send almost $9,000 back to CRS from last year's sale.
