Several years ago, we started holding Yard Sales to benefit the Center. Over time, it has evolved into a very successful fundraiser. It takes place twice a year, spring and fall. A large team of people, headed up by Marie King, work on it for months, as it takes lots of preparation. We receive all sorts of donations that we are able to offer for sale such as exercise equipment, home decor items, collectibles, sporting equipment, books, antiques, housewares and much, much more.
One hundred percent of the profits go directly to the Center for our Work for Rent program. We pick up furniture donations and deliver them to families in need with the help of workers that we ‘pay’ by writing a check towards their rent or a bill.
Our spring sale is next weekend, Saturday April 29 and Sunday April 30. Bring your donations in this week – then visit the sale on the weekend 9:00am – 1:00pm Saturday and Sunday, and also after the 5:30pm mass on Saturday. It’s located in the lower level of the Tileston building, accessible through the entrance from the parking lot across from church. Look for the banner!
