We will need lots of hands on deck to make this sale a success. Please consider volunteering! The link below will lead to registration for volunteers.
Registration for consignors is now open! Being a consignor is a great way to get rid of your children's clothes, while making some extra cash and helping "Imagine No Malaria." There is a $10 registration fee; consignors will receive 60% of the proceeds on items sold, and 40% of the proceeds will go towards protecting children from the fatal disease of malaria.
Here are more detailed instructions on how to tag your childrens clothes and other items as you prepare to consign.
“It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth.” Ecclesiastes 4:9
Come and help us organize and tag the items that were donated to The Children's Consignment Sale. Tagging Tuesdays will be every Tuesday in July, beginning July 7 in room 103, and will be a drop by event from 3:00-7:00 p.m. This will be a fun way to serve while enjoying fellowship with others!
Please contact Betsy or Mary Claire if you have any questions!
