Global Gifts

If you care about the world and want to help others in impoverished countries, Global Gifts is the place to volunteer! We are a non-profit, Fair Trade marketplace where every item sold makes a difference in someone's life.

Whether your gift is a hand-made item, allowing artisan groups to support their families or supporting agricultural groups, like coffee and cocoa farmers, to sell their products free of slave labor, everything we sell makes the world a better place.

We need sales help on Saturday. Could this be you? Our shifts:

  • 10:00 to 2:00 or
  • 12:00 to 4:00 or
  • 2:00 to 5:30 or
  • 5:30 to 9:30
If you want to save the world, this is a great place to start.
