Thank you to all Volunteers and Shoppers

Thank you to all Volunteers and Shoppers

Our Rummage Sale was a great success with items flying off the racks and shelves.  Furniture and art deals were a huge hit.  A lucky young man got a new bed for only $10 – we are pleased that our fundraising efforts help out lots of other people.  Thank you to all of the volunteers, including members of our day program, for helping to set up the sales room, helping out during the sale and even cooking the sausages and fries.  The money will go towards taking 18 individuals on a week long trip to Virginia Beach.  They leave this Saturday and folks are already excited.  Our sincere thanks again to everyone who helped make this a great success……our shoppers too.
