Getting Ready for Yard Sale

YARD SALE NEEDS YOU!!! We are in full planning mode for our annual Yard Sale on Saturday, June 1. Yard sale drop off will begin on Sunday, May 26 after church service. Sign up can be done here on our website or on sign-up sheets at church. The Yard Sale is a great way to give back to the community, to meet members of the congregation you don’t know, and to have FUN!!! The event is also an important fundraiser for the congregation. Direct any questions to Rebecca Claycamp at rdclaycamp@gmail.com. Contact Rebecca and she also can also find just the “job” to match your time and talents. If each adult member will do at least two things on the list below, the event will be a huge success.

  1. Prior to May 26 commit and sign up to help in a department.
  2. Say “YES” when approached by a Department Coordinator to help with a department.
  3. Each time you drop off items, make sure that items arrive at the department they belong; sort clothes into designated sections.
  4. After you properly drop off items, donate at least an hour to help with a department that needs help sorting and/or pricing. How-to guides will be posted in most departments.
  5. Have expertise? Help identify valuable items from the mounds of stuff.
  6. Starting on the 26th , bring in large sized cardboard boxes, plastic grocery bags and spare hangers for the Clothing Department. Different boxes are useful in other departments (e.g., low shallow boxes for books).
  7. Work any day/evening with truck pick-up of furniture.
  8. Donate needed food items for our “snack bar.”
  9. On June 1, work in a department for at least 2 hours, especially between 7-10 (the busiest time).
  10. Volunteer to help with clean-up (1:30 pm on Saturday).
