Guatemalan Items At HOME Store

ORLAND — Recently volunteers from HOME Inc. and the St. Francis Community traveled to Guatemala and brought back handmade native weavings available for purchase in the HOME gift store.

The money raised from the sale of the weavings will directly benefit the community of San Juan Comalapa in Guatemala. Money raised in the past was used to bring water to the homes of 29 families who until recently had to walk four hours daily in order to have water.

Items for sale include table-runners, place mats, handbags and purses, wallets, traditional and decorative weavings and handmade jewelry.

Information: 469-7961.
