Is your heart stirred by the plight of the poor around the world? Are you looking for a way to help? Come to the University Covenant Church’s second annual Christmas Bazaar to buy gifts for friends and family members while blessing those in need across the globe.

The bazaar will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, at 315 Mace Blvd. in Davis. Admission is free and ample parking is available in the church lots.

This year, the bazaar is partnering with several charitable organizations, including The Apparent Project, Sak Saum and Trade as One. A variety of jewelry, scarves and purses, along with crocheted pieces, holiday décor and fair-trade food items will be for sale.

All of the products have been made by men and women around the world who are working to get out of poverty and keep their families together. Some are recovering from a life spent in sex trafficking. Proceeds from the Christmas Bazaar directly benefit the partnership organizations.

The bazaar was launched last year at UCC by a group of women who felt a compelling need to step up and make the change after learning about poverty and trafficking around the world. According to World Vision, more than 1 billion people — one of every six people on the planet — are at risk of hunger. Globally, more than 150 million children under the age of 5 are stunted and another 19 million are severely malnourished, a church news release said.
