“At Manchester Christian Church, we are all about providing the under-resourced with a hand up versus a hand out. People are going to buy gifts, cards, food and clothing so the idea that we can be intentional with our buying fits right into what we do in the area of global outreach. Once we made the decision to partner with Trade As One and open a Trading Post, we started to see people engage their hearts during the simple act of purchasing a gift by connecting the items to the personal stories.”
