Garage Unsale... the details

Here are the basic details:

What: The Garage Unsale is going to be just like a Garage Sale, except we’re going to give stuff away. We’re putting a limit on how many items people can take to make sure that everyone gets what they need.

When: Saturday, October 10, 8-12

Where: Beacon parking lot

Why: We want to serve people with no strings attached. Many of us have too much stuff, stuff we don’t use or stuff we’ve replaced and it’s just taking up space in our attics or closets. Why not give that stuff away to families that need it? In light of our countries tough economic times this seems like the perfect time to give stuff away. The goal isn’t to get people into our churches. The goal is to serve people so that God is glorified. The goal is to build a reputation of being for people.

What we need: Stuff… lots of stuff. Not broken stuff, not junk, but good stuff. We need clothes, furniture, electronics, toys, baby items, appliances and school supplies. We need people to serve. We need people to help collect stuff and to separate/organize it. We need people to serve on that Saturday as guides, helpers, runners (we want trucks available to deliver furniture to people’s houses).

Pods has donated a container so that we can begin storing items. We’ll have some drop off dates available in the near future. We want to go ahead and start collecting stuff so that it will be easy to put it out on the Saturday of the Unsale.

That's all I've got for now. Are you excited?
