We always like to extend free space for the philanthropic societies close to our hearts, and Karis is just one such special endeavour.
"Supporting pregnant & single moms with babies up to 2 years old in a drug-free environment to help them in their recovery and to gain self-esteem, self-respect, life skills, & parenting skills."
Next time you stop by the market, be sure to check out their "Artsy Phartsy" table of quirky up- cycled aprons, tote and grocery bags, and cleaning cloths. This new project is a social enterprise for Karis Support Society, so all profits would go directly back into their recovery program.
"A big part of the vision for this social enterprise is to train some of our participants in the art of sewing. Being creative and collaborating in the development of this social enterprise helps the women to learn how to work together and grow together as a team. As the social enterprise develops and becomes more financially stable the goal is to be able to provide employment for the women"
We are thrilled to be a part of this truly important cause and we would like to take this opportunity to welcome The Karis Society to the market and encourage the community to check out their story and support them in a any way they can, be it a purchase or just a friendly chat and a smile . Everything we do in kindness, big or small, helps our community ties grow.
