On Saturday, August 18, from 10;00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Good Shepherd will host a garage sale in the parking lot at Gethsemane Lutheran Church, Colfax Avenue and 46th Street North, where Camden Promise is located.
We specifically will be offering back-to-school clothes and household items for the families that use Camden Promise. Families will be preparing for the school year, and clothes for the children are a primary concern. In addition, the sale will allow families to select household items, which the space at Camden Promise does not allow. The Camden Promise staff will determine how families “purchase” these items.
You are invited to share gently used back-to-school clothes and shoes for all ages (preschool through high school), as well as household items (e.g., sheets, towels, dishes, pots & pans, flatware). We are not prepared to transport furniture. Those items may be left in the South Multipurpose Room. The deadline is this Wednesday, August 15.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Volunteers are needed to sort and “price” items here at Good Shepherd on August 16 and 17, as well as transport donated items, set up the sales tables at Camden Promise and work at the sale on August 18. Lunch will be provided on that Saturday. If it rains, the sale will be moved inside Gethsemane Lutheran Church. Please consider assisting our brothers and sisters in north Minneapolis by sharing your bounty. Questions? Contact Karen Walhof.
