In December, students in the Penn State Beaver Catholic Newman Club raised $496.27 to benefit Catholic Relief Services (CRS) through the Work of Human Hands sale. Sales were conducted in the Brodhead Bistro for a week prior to the holidays.
The Work of Human Hands program allows hosts to sell high quality, fairly traded handcrafts and gourmet food items from disadvantaged producers across the globe. The CRS Fair Trade network guarantees fair wages to disadvantaged artisans, farmers and workers. It also provides the technical and financial assistance that many people desperately need but rarely get in a conventional trading system.
