SERRV is an independent, non-profit fair trade organization whose mission is “to eradicate poverty wherever it resides by providing opportunity and support to artisans and farmers worldwide.”
Through SERRV’s work with more than 70 community-based organizations in 36 countries, SERRV creates economic opportunity so these producers can support their families. In addition to purchasing and marketing products, SERRV works with producers to help them become economically self sufficient through product design, training, information, technical assistance and of course a fair wage.
The outlet store in New Windsor has closed due to sale of the property. SERVV still operates on line. You can view their catalog and purchase items by going to www.serrv.org.
The Westminster Church of the Brethren recruits volunteers on a regular basis to work at SERRV in New Windsor. Call the church office at 410-848-8090 for more information.
