2010 Yard Sale


A BIG, sincere THANK YOU to all the volunteers working Yard Sale 2010—before, during, and after! Each of you helped make this a success, which means we helped hundreds of folks and will be able to help many others through our national and international mission and outreach programs. This includes all the donors freely giving of their items. The presence of the Holy Spirit was clearly visible in all the smiles, laughs, hard work, cooperation, and generosity of time and materials—on Saturday and all the preparation days. Thanks again from your M&O/Yard Sale Team. Incidentally, the total income was $6385.07.
