A Greater Gift

The Giving Store At The Loft Coffee House Spring Branch

The Loft has been serving up a great cuppa joe and delicious treats for over a decade with the overall message of: come, gather, give. So it’s no surprise that the newest endevor for this Coffee Shop With A Cause would be a sweet little boutique offering handmade items with an uplifting message.

Beautifully sewn bags, beaded crosses and even adorable plush animals are displayed in a micro-shop within the front entrance. Called The Giving Store, the small but well stocked display highlights stylish, well-made products that are produced by groups looking to empower others.

Bold, graphic, fabrics with an inkling of another region showcase the skills of the people of Uganda and Kenya. The bags and other items come from Imani Xchange, an organization in Kenya that offers hope to women in poverty and empowers them to succeed and create a better path for themselves and their family.

Locally, the shop also offers beautiful beaded items from the Texas Foundation of Hope. The foundation was created to give individuals with disabilities and special needs the opportunity for employment and to gain invaluable life skills. Each product comes with a signed card from the special person who crafted it.

The Loft is a non-profit ministry of Riverside Community Church. The organization believes in the power of lifting up the community by giving back both locally and internationally.
