Marywood University Hosts “Work of Human Hands” Fair Trade Shopping Events That Aid Artisans of Developing Nations


SCRANTON, PA—Marywood University’s department of campus ministry invites the community to shop for fair trade gifts, housewares, jewelry, and more.  “The Work of Human Hands” Sale will take place on Monday, November 24, and Wednesday, December 3, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., in the Fireplace Lounge, Nazareth Hall Student Center at Marywood University.


Every purchase made at the “Work of Human Hands” sale allows a producer to provide for the basic necessities of life, to educate his or her children, and to work in a safe environment. The sale is part of the “Work of Human Hands” program, a partnership between Catholic Relief Services and A Greater Gift, a nonprofit program of SERRV International, an alternative trade and development organization, which currently works with artisans and farmers in 35 countries around the world.
