Enjoy a Fall Coffee and Help Global Village
Your Pumpkin Spice Latte and Harvest Latte are Ready!
Ready for a delicious coffee drink that helps others?
This month at Rock Creek Coffee Roasters, you can enjoy two of our unique, specialty coffees and assist
the non-profit organization, Global Village.
Now, we know there are many “Autumn” lattes around this time of year, but we create ours right here at the coffee shop so they have a unique taste.
During October, you can enjoy our Pumpkin Spice Latte or our Harvest Latte, and we will donate a
portion of the sales to help Global Village.
Global Village is a non-profit, Fair Trade organization at www.globalvillagebillings.org that, “supports the world’s low income artisans and farmers through the operation of a Fair Trade retails store and educational activities that promote the values of Fair Trade, tolerance and cultural appreciation.”
Back in 1987 right here in Billings, three, local women decided to start an organization that would help make a difference in the lives of artisans and farmers worldwide.
They reached out to the nearby faith community for assistance, and with the help of committed volunteers, Global Village was born.
The organization has grown significantly and focuses on supporting artisans through educational activities that, “further the values of tolerance and understanding of the world’s many diverse cultures.”
Today, this non-profit has relocated to a new facility and is overseen by a Board of Directors with over 40 volunteer staff and a director who co-ordinates the store and activities.
They have many events throughout the year.
This include their Annual Chocolate Tasting and Holiday Open House coming up in November, an Annual Friends Campaign through December and the Downtown Billings Artwalk in December.
(Discover more about these events, check out their Facebook page here.)
To learn more about this organization, stop by the coffee shop for your Pumpkin Spice Latte or Harvest Latte today. Enjoy a delicious coffee drink and help others, too!
