CHURCH GARAGE SALE - October 3rd. and 4th.

It won't be long now until our Church Garage Sale. This year, you will not have to haul your donations to the church. Jerry and I are picking up everyone's donations throughout the next few weeks in an effort to make the event easier for all of us. It would be very helpful if you could have your donations ready for early pick up beginning now. When they are ready, please call me at 501-922-3367 and we will make a time to come get them. Please leave a message if there is no answer and we will return your call.  Of course if you would prefer to bring you donations directly to church please bring them Tue. Sept. 30th or Wed. Oct. 1st.
Remember: We do not take clothing but we do take purses/handbags, etc. If you have clothing you wish to donate, I will be happy to take them to Safe Haven Thrift Shop where I volunteer. Also, if you have furniture, we will pick it up later when there is a larger truck and a couple more guys available.
Note:  Donation Receipts are available.
Thank you,
Sandy Mostrog
