Our wonderful volunteer organizer, Karen Peterson, invites you to donate and help at the Priceless Treasures rummage sale:
What is the purpose of our rummage sale?
The rummage sale is a multi-layered ministry:
GREEN MINISTRY: People donate things they no longer want or need, to be sold, instead of sending them to the landfill.
SOCIAL MINISTRY: People who are financially challenged frequently rely on rummage sales and thrift stores to buy the things they and their families need. Not having much money doesn’t mean a person doesn’t have pride.
Sometimes, when someone you love dies, it is very difficult to dispose of his/her possessions. This is an opportunity to give those belongings away to a place where they might do some good. This will provide a local service opportunity for our youth. Arrangements have been made fort wo local organizations to come and take the unsold items, which increases the number of people in need who will have access to the things they need to live.
FELLOWSHIP MINISTRY: Working together to sort, organize, price and merchandise the items to be sold is an opportunity for people to get to know one another, especially folks who are new to SHUMC, and our youth. Whether or not you already know the people with whom you are working, this is a great opportunity to have some FUN.
FINANCIAL MINISTRY: There are lots of ways the money can be used.
What is needed? Your stuff that you no longer wish to own, i.e., books, CDs, DVDs, clothes (all seasons), shoes, games, toys, puzzles, craft materials, home décor, furniture, sports equipment, tools, yard maintenance items, kitchen stuff, knick-knacks, coats, appliances, furniture, jewelry, electronics, and so on.
We also need cardboard flats and boxes. We need YOU to volunteer some time to help with this effort. Sign-up sheets will be in the narthex soon.
