A fair trade sale took place this afternoon at the St. Joseph Church Parish life center. 

The seventh annual trade sale offered handmade items that are from all over the world. There was coffee, chocolate, handmade crafts, and much more. Purchases made at the event supports workers in developing countries that are seeking better lives for their families. The Petersburg Parish works with SERRV, whose mission is to put an end to poverty. 

Rachel Barber who organized the event says the organization raised over $700 last year. 

"Our brothers and sisters living all over the world and we are responsible for one another whenever we live. So they get the benefit of our dollars. Then they can use that money to support their families where they live," says Barber. 

Barber says that the great thing about the event is that the Wapak community also benefits from the products.
