Neighborhood Partnership Missions Yard Sale

FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 5:00-7:00PM AND SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 9:00AM-2:00PM

First Baptist Greenville’s yearly Neighborhood Partnership Missions Yard Sale is Friday, March 23, 5:00-7:00pm and Saturday, March 24, 9:00am-2:00pm. You can help by donating, volunteering and shopping.

Any household items including furniture, appliances, decorative items, toys, books and tools can be donated to the yard sale. Donated items can be dropped off at the practice gym during the day until the yard sale starts.

Volunteers are needed this week to price and organize donations as they are brought in. Volunteers are also needed during the sale on Friday, March 23, from 4:30pm to 7:00pm and on Saturday, March 24, from 7:30am to 2:00pm. All items not sold will be given to Miracle Hill Ministries. We will use volunteers as the yard sale ends on Saturday to help pack items, load the truck and clean the gym. We can use anyone for any amount of time.

Please come to shop and tell your friends and neighbors about the sale. More people shopping leads to a more successful sale. Proceeds from the Yard Sale each year are used to support our Neighborhood Partnership Missions Ministries. These ministries include building handicapped ramps, rehabbing homes, painting and minor home repair. (Each year mission groups come to Greenville to work in our Neighborhood Partnership Communities and yard sale funds pay for building materials and supplies.) The funds provide emergency assistance with rent, house payments, utility bills and medication. The funds are used to provide monthly activities, including out-of-town town trips, and Trunk or Treat once each year. The funds enable our Neighborhood Partners to attend programs at First Baptist such as First Friday Lunch and More and the Senior Adult Banquet. They also assist with a yearly health fair in Nicholtown, “Let’s Move” Summer Camp and Police Camp GREAT (Gang Resistance Education and Training).

If you are able to volunteer in any way or have questions about donations, please contact Frank Smith (ext.125). Thank you for supporting the yard sale and in turn strengthening the Neighborhood Partnership Ministry at First Baptist and the work we are able to do in the community.
