Giving life to missions is the mission statement of the “Our Giving Tree” Bookstore and Gift Shop.
The shop is entirely staffed by volunteers.
Found there are unique and hand-crafted fair-trade items from around the world and American-made items, too. Home and kitchen decor, hand-made dish ware, baskets, jewelry, scarves, handbags, delicious chocolates and gourmet coffees are just a few of the items you will find.
You can feel good about your purchase knowing that it improves the lives of artisans and farmers from around the world since all proceeds go to missions. Over $30,000 has been given to missions since the store’s opening in 2009.
“Our Giving Tree” is located at First United Methodist Church (72 Lake Morton Drive, Lakeland, 33801). The store is on the left in the Welcome Center on the first floor of the C Building.
