St. Richards Yard Sale 2017
Our traditional Labor Day weekend yard sale will be held on Saturday September 2 and Sunday September 3, 2017. Expect fun, fellowship and great bargains. This sale provides an opportunity for all church members to work together for a common cause. This fundraiser is the major fundraiser for the church for 2017. It takes everyone to make it a success. It also gives members of the community an opportunity to purchase items that they could not otherwise afford. We are accepting donations of all smaller items starting July 6th. We would prefer to accept larger items, such as furniture or equipment in August. However anyone who must bring larger items sooner can call ahead to make arrangements. All donations are welcome except TVs and books. We are especially looking for tools, furniture, jewelry, appliances, household goods (such as dishes, lamps, paintings, carpets, silverware, etc.), toys, and games. Clothes need to be clean and in good shape. Appliances and all electrical equipment should be working.
If you are wondering how you can help your church here are some ways: when you spring clean, box everything up and bring them to the church, spread the word in the community, look for friends who are moving or cleaning out belongings and ask for donations. Be sure to mention that all donations are tax deductible. Volunteer your time to help sort and price items. Volunteer Labor Day weekend. Help will be needed to set up, sell items, cleanup, work the parking lot, bake a cake, sell food, play games with kids and have fun. Past volunteers report that the more they got involved, the more they developed good friends and a deeper connection to the church community. Let’s all support the church financially and grow closer together at the same time.
Thanks so much,
