The church places a large order in late October for a variety of coffee, tea, chocolate, and ornaments. A group of voluteers from the church then spend time putting together gift baskets with the items. The gift baskets are then sold to congregation members and the community at cost just in time for the holidays.
The church does not make money on this sale – it is purely a way to support the fair trade producers.
