The United Way Committee here at the College usually holds four Craft & Gift Fairs throughout the year, in the Main Foyer, to raise money for this very worthy charity. The first one of this Fall will be held _this upcoming week in the Main Foyer, from Monday, September 18 to Friday, September 22, inclusive.
Table space is rented out to local craft & gift vendors on a daily basis, and the proceeds go towards Langara’s annual United Way campaign (which takes place largely in the Fall semester each year). So please do check it out during your coffee or lunch breaks, or at the end of the work day.
All sorts of intriguing crafts & gifts will be on sale, so come and see what appeals to you. This is a great opportunity to shop for gifts for family and friends (and even spoil yourself!) Some of the popular vendors returning for this month’s Fair are…
- the succulents & cactus guys! (Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri)
- the Japanese herbal tea lady! (Mon to Fri)
- and many, many more intriguing vendors of clothes, jewelry, ornaments, semi-precious stones, air-plants, knick-knacks, etc!
Buying crafts from the local vendors encourages them to come back for our subsequent craft fairs — and thus helps raise even more money in the future for Langara’s annual United Way campaign.
