The annual UUCM Rummage Sale will be on Saturday, April 20, 2024 from 9 am to 2:30 pm.  PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS. It will be indoors in Benker Hall.  We will be charging an admission fee of $4 for the FIRST HOUR of the sale.  Admission is FREE beginning at 10 am.
 
We need items to sell! You may leave donations on the stage in Benker Hall beginning the weekend of March 16-17. Check your closets, your basements, your garage. Invite friends and neighbors to donate.  Many people are looking for a good place to share their no-longer-needed items.    
Here are some donation guidelines:
 
* Housewares, kitchen, decorative items, sporting goods, house linens, office supplies, craft items, jewelry, small furniture, tools, yard, and pet items will be welcomed.
* We are accepting clothes and shoes. It is helpful if they are bagged separately from other rummage sale items.
* Scarves, purses, and bags are good.
* Books are great.
* Only higher-quality toys and games will be accepted.  Thank you but no stuffed animals, car seats, large plastic toys or vehicles, etc.
* Please only donate electronics that there is a good chance someone would want and be able to use.
* Please only items that are clean and in good condition.  It is very hard for us to manage items in need of even a small repair.
* If you have a question about if an item will be accepted, please ask.
 
In addition to donating items, your help is also needed in the following areas:
 
1) Help will be needed in advance of the sale to sort and price.  There will be a sorting party on Friday, March 29 from 12:30 to 3:00.  And more dates after that.
2) We need people during the sale to check out shoppers, answer questions, and organize merchandise.  The jewelry table needs special attention throughout the day.
3) Help is needed beginning at 2:30 to pack up and remove leftover items.
 
Last year the Rummage Sale raised $5000 in support of the day-to-day operations of the church. We appreciate your help in helping to make it happen again this year.
