Thank you to everyone who participated in the garage sale! In addition to supplementing our operating budget by $4,351.05, here’s what our sale has done:

  1. We provided treasures to those who shopped.
  2. We supplied a couch to a new refugee family through EMM.
  3. All of the left over clothes went to Table of Hope for their clothes closet.
  4. All left over books went to Union Rescue Mission.
  5. The rest of the left over treasures went to a family whose son is in band at Southeast High School and they will be having a sale to raise money for the band trip to France.
  6. One woman bought a bag of beanie babies as bingo prizes for nuns.
  7. Someone bought a large amount of craft and school items to go with a friend of hers to a border town school in Mexico.
  8. One woman bought craft items for the nuns at the monastery to make items for their fundraiser.
  9. One woman bought jewelry as bingo prizes for a nursing home.
  10. The furniture that didn’t sell was given to a home of college students.

As you can see our sale has a far-reaching impact.  Thanks again to everyone.  It takes everyone to make this a successful event!
