Outreach funding has chosen Carstens Reaching Initiative as the recipients of funds raised at Gifts and Green this year.

Children’s Literacy Initiative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit working with pre-k through 5th grade teachers to improve early literacy instruction so that children become powerful readers, writers, and thinkers. Our goal is to close the literacy achievement gap between disadvantaged children and their more affluent peers. Click HERE to learn more.

Parish Marketplace:  Your Canned Goods and Baked Goods are needed!

As you are canning this fall remember the Gifts and Green Market Place!   Your homemade baked goods (cakes, breads, cookies, and brownies), your canned jams, jellies, chutney and other like canned goods make the Market Place one of the most visited locations during the weekend.   Please make your commitment today to contribute to the Market Place. Catherine Ash has graciously offered to chair the Parish Marketplace again this year.

Here is what we need you to do: 

  • Make your commitment and tell us what you will donate to the Market Place.  
  • Mark your calendar and deliver your items on Thursday, December 5 (between 5-7 pm), or Friday December 6 (between 9 am-2 pm)
  • Drop off location will be in the lobby on Baker's rack for Parish Market
  • We appreciate your having your goods in ready to sell packaging 

See through packaging allows buyers to more quickly see what they are purchasing.
