Eye Contact-Alternative Shopping and Awareness Event


Hi Friends of the Volunteer Resource Center!

Our annual alternative shopping and awareness event, Eye Contact, is coming up December 4th from 11- 3 in the UMC Glenn Miller Ballroom. This year, we’ll be celebrating the holidays with the theme: “A Woman’s Worth”, focusing on women’s empowerment and ways in which both men and women can engage with the ways in which women are valuable to our lives.

We are hosting a variety of local, sustainable, and Fair Trade organizations and businesses to sell their goods, creating an alternative holiday shopping opportunity for students and community members to support amazing causes. Stop by to browse unique gifts like recycled jewelry, handmade elephant journals, and hand-dyed scarves from around the world. You can enjoy live music, sip hot cocoa, engage with woman’s empowerment, and meet people who make a difference!

We would love for you to join us at our event! We want men, women, and everyone in between to come, shop, eat, engage, and make eye contact. Please check out our event page here. In addition, be sure to bring your wallet to the event as it’s so fun and easy to do a lot of your holiday shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts!

Thank you for all that you do to make this world a more just place!Image
