10:00 AM - 4:00 PM IEW: Ten Thousand Villages Festival Sale

Do you need help shopping for the Holidays?
Want to help support a good cause?

Stop by the Ten Thousand Villages Festival Sale on Thursday, November 7th between 10am - 4pm in Reynolds Campus Center!

"By giving artisans the opportunity for a sustainable income, it makes them less vulnerable and susceptible to unfavorable circumstances such as trafficking. Many of the artisans are able to provide education for their children, including their daughters. We have heard incredible stories of daughters going on to be doctors or lawyers, thus stopping the poverty cycle. So while the products you may receive at the Festival Sale may have been made by a man, the impact on man, and woman alike, is truly amazing."
