2017 Missions Garage Sale
Missions Garage Sale Supports Church, Local Charities
More than $20,300 was raised at the recent Missions Garage Sale to support local, area and world mission projects during the coming year. Church members, friends, and neighbors provided thousands of items for the sale and hundreds of volunteer hours during the months leading up to the big event July 26-29 — then shopped generously! Besides the items sold, local agencies benefiting from donated goods included the Northgate UMC clothes closet, Many Helping Hands, the Main Place, Goodwill, DAV, Arms of Hope, the Humane Society, and quilter and knitting groups that provide comfort for hospital patients. The PPUMC Missions team offers special thanks to Joe and Barbara Canafax and the UMW for providing the Preview Night Dinner and to all who helped make this event successful. The dinner/preview began three days of shoppers filling the church’s rooms and hallways through the closing bag sale on Saturday. Chair Diane Mannon and other volunteers looked forward to a well-deserved rest.
