This will be my last post until the weekend is over.
Hubby and I busy as bees getting ready for our huge yard sale on Saturday.
We are part of our Church-wide sale. There are about 200 homes, many just a single family or like ours have 4 or 5 families combining their goods. For those who are unable to have a sale at their home there is also a huge sale in the Church parking lot. There will be about 200 stalls there too. Lots of goodies for everyone.
Why all the work? This is called Bayside Gives Back (our church). 100% of the proceeds will go to 24 local organizations that take care of underprivileged people in our area. It seems that everyone gives to charities during the holidays, but by the time summer rolls around many of these agencies are hurting. That's why we are ready to "Give Back" and help our local communities. Monies will go to places such as our local Food Banks, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Teen Challenge and St. John's women shelter, to name just a few.
The Bibical premise for the endeveor is Acts 2:45.....Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.
I will give you a follow up when I post Sunday Night or Monday.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
