Marywood’s P.E.A.C.E. Club (People Encouraging A Cooperative Environment), which promotes values of peace and bettering our environment, both ecologically and socially, will sell purses at Everything Natural, State Street, Clarks Summit April 28 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. to help fund its four day student-run camp this summer.
The camp will teach elementary-age children the foundations of peace, problem solving and working together in order to better themselves, each other and the environment.
It is offered at no cost by raising funds by partnering with Daakye, a fair trade social enterprise selling African purses made in Ghana. Daakye, which means “Our Future,” returns profits from the purses to Ghana to send children to school. One purse funds one child’s education for one week.
Barry Kaplan, of Everything Natural, said this is a perfect with with the shop. “One action,” he explained, “doing multiple goods.”
