Why Garage Sale?


  1. Garage Sale - WHY? This is the only fundraiser Outreach / Radical Hospitality does each year. We joined in with the community from what I can tell back in 2007 with our first year having a lunch stand only. The next year we decided to try selling garage sale items along with the lunch stand and it went very well. We are so thankful to all of you, your families and friends for donating your unwanted "stuff" to help our committee. The first year we made over $600 and have made as much as $2250. This year we made $1276.63 so far and normally add to it with the sale of pop/snacks that we keep in the refrigerator.

 

The proceeds from the garage sale has been used in many different ways over the years. Past donations have included:

 

The building fund,

health kits and blankets for Church World Service

helped many local families with hardships/illnesses

Adopted two families this past year at Christmas

Christmas / Easter baskets for shut-ins

Ft McKinley UMC Outreach

Food Pantry

Darke County Community Christmas Drive

Supported mission trips

School Supplies

Malaria Nets

Journey Home

Hope in Recovery

4th of July Quarter Auction

 

  1. So each year when doing your Spring cleaning, remember our Outreach / Radical Hospitality committee. As the saying goes "one man's junk is another man's treasure" and your contributions help fund many different projects and people in need.
