TWO WAYS to PAY IT FORWARD
Presented by Westwood Church in Los Angeles, Scattered for Service is an opportunity to “pay it forward” while shopping for friends and family this holiday season. While normally held before and after church services, we’ve moved it online this year to make it accessible to everyone!
1. Fair Trade Gifts
SHOPPING DAYS: Sundays, December 11th and 18th
Before and After Worship in Lower Helms Hall at Westwood Church
Our partners at Fair Trade Winds provide a wide variety of certified fair trade and environmentally-sustainable products available for purchase as a way to support artisans, farmers, and craftspeople around the globe. Fair Trade Winds donates 5% of the gross product sold at Scattered for Service back to Westwood Church, and those proceeds cover the costs of putting on the event plus other administrative expenses throughout the year.

2. Impact Gifts
Give a unique gift this Christmas…an impact gift! Explore our store of partner organizations and select a donation amount from the drop-down menu on the non-profit’s page. Because these organizations are experiencing unique challenges due to Covid including an increase in the needs they serve, this is an important year to support the great work they are doing. We encourage you to donate to as many organizations as you’d like!
NOTE: After checking out, you’ll download a printable pdf on which you can write a note to the recipient indicating the organization and amount you donated in their honor.
