Enjoy a Fair Trade Coffee Tasting and Help Guatemalan Schools and Communities

The Department of Diversity is sponsoring a Fair Trade Coffee Tasting as part of Hispanic Heritage Month to benefit green technology projects for schools and communities in rural Guatemala.

9 am – 2 pm

Funds raised this year will benefit ICC’s ongoing efforts in the Northwest Highland Region of Guatemala. Last year, through a grant from the ICC Educational Foundation, students and faculty built a solar-powered coffee dryer, put pop bottle lights in Mayan homes, and added a pop bottle wall and solar-powered hot water heater at a community center. Funds also have been used to repair a leaky roof at a local school.
