At an SLT (School Leadership Team) meeting, guest speaker Linda Villa-Passione introduced the idea of fundraising with Free Trade market items.
Free Trade offers high quality, organic items such as coffee, teas and chocolate. In supporting their textiles, we support the local family farmers and women who receive a fair price for the products they make.
The consideration of Free Trade Fundraising for P.S. 150Q is to offer products that are unique, competitive and higher quality. At the same time, there is the opportunity to raise our children’s awareness of the origins the items came from and hopefully enlighten the sponsors they solicit.
Detailed information about the mission and the products are available from Deans Beans, Equal Exchange and Mayan Hands in PDF format.
