We’re Making Local Connections Meaningful
FOOD DRIVE to benefit Connections for the Homeless
Deliver your donations of nutritious, ready-to-eat, nonperishable food items to our store at 719 Main Street. We will collect items now through October 12, 2014. Connections for the Homeless is an Evanston nonprofit which provides housing, employment and supportive services to move individuals and families out of the shadow of homelessness. Ten Thousand Villages Evanston is proud to host this food drive.
Community Shopping Events open to all!
We are pleased to connect with local nonprofits by holding Community Shopping Events in our store. Enjoy shopping for GIFTS THAT GIVE IN THREE WAYS: 1) to the artisans we support; 2) the featured non-profit; and 3) to the person receiving the gift. A percentage of sales during the event will be donated to the hosting organization.
Support local nonprofits by purchasing items during their shopping events. Several are scheduled for Fall 2014:
• Thursday, Sept. 18 (5:00 – 8:00 pm) – RAIN-Uganda

Our mission is to provide fair wage income for people in the developing world by marketing their handcrafted products and sharing their artisan stories.
