Ascension Lutheran Church Gifts of Hope Boutique in Thousand Oaks
November 16, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Ascension Lutheran Church and School’s annual Gifts of Hope Boutique is the perfect place to start your Christmas shopping! With items from many countries and artisians representing an array of cultures and creative skills, you are sure to find meaningful gifts for everyone on your list. This is a boutique with a heart – over the years, Gifts of Hope has raised nearly $1 million to support specific charitable activities locally and in Africa. In addition, the vending organizations involved guarantee workers are paid fair wages.
Items range from chocolates, coffees and teas, to scarves, baskets and stuffed animals. There will also be Bethlehem olive wood carvings, a wide variety of Christmas ornaments, eye-catching tote bags made from “up-cycled” materials and greeting cards created by Rwandan refugees and women who have been rescued from human trafficking in the Philippines.
The boutique takes place in Ascension’s Founder’s Hall, Nov. 15-16. Saturday, 6-7:30 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
