The United Nations Association Center
The purpose of the Center is to raise funds for UNICEF and our educational programs. Our biggest generator of funds is our store, which offers a marvelous selection of globally sourced folk art and crafts, including textiles, jewelry, ceramics, clothing, books, toys, objets d'art and more.
We also think it's extremely important to promote understanding between cultures. That is why our store regularly sponsors artisans and craftspeople—so they can show you first-hand what it takes to make the wonderful items they make.
Volunteers—Our Ambassadors of Good Will (and Great Service)!
Since1975, our volunteers have been the engine of our success. We rely on them to welcome, inform, advise, assist—in short, to make your visit to our store the special occasion it ought to be.
