Mathews Chapel has been supporting farmers in the United States and around the world for over 14 years through the UMCOR Coffee Project. You get access to Organic, fairly-traded products at discounted wholesale prices, ensuring that more of the money you spend on coffee and other products reaches the hardworking farmers who actually grow them. Because these farmers are paid above market prices for their crops, they are able to make investments in community projects, educational programs, and technical trainings. These cooperative organizations also help keep rural communities healthy and strong, and keep local cultures vibrant. Equal Exchange is also committed to supporting sustainable farming methods that help green the earth through reforestation, natural resource conservation and organic practices. For each pound of fairly traded coffee, chocolate, tea, and foods purchased through the UMCOR Coffee Project, 15 cents per pound goes to UMCOR's Small Farmer Fund. $9,261.99 in 2018 and went to the UMCOR Africa Sustainable Agriculture Initiative. Orders are due by November 17 with payment when the products arrive. Only full cases. See catalogs and order forms in the Sunday School Classes and back of the Sanctuary.  For more information, contact Peggy Newsome, 725-3721

Monthly financial reports will be posted on the bulletin board in the social hall. Please let Nancy Keenan know if you would like any further information.
