Big Yard Sale for a Great Cause begins Thursday
The town-wide yard sale does not officially begin until this Saturday, but nobody told the Cumberland Presbyterian youth that. They are holding a yard sale at 323 Suwannee in Burns Flat beginning this Thursday and continuing through Saturday.
Why a 3-day sale?
The answer is because they have too much to sell in one day.
Why should I go to this yard sale?
The answer is that these sales help send elementary youth to church camp this July. Camp is a place where many transformations take place but it costs $300 per child to go to camp. It is expensive but well worth it.
So what are those who can’t afford it to do? Raise money! Selling hotdogs at Atwoods, silent auctions, and yes—a 3-day yard sale helps these youth earn their way to camp.
These youth belong to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Burns Flat, Oklahoma. You may have seen them handing out Gospels of John or blue wrist-bands that say: God loves you – Love one another. This week they need a little boost to get them to camp.
Donations are being accepted now. The sale begins on Thursday morning at 8:00 a.m. Donate something that you don’t need anymore. Buy something that you can’t live without. Send a kid to camp!
Thursday, Friday, & Saturday
