FALL TIME DE-CLUTTERING
Are you using the change of pace of summer to go through your closets, attic and garage in an effort to de-clutter? Has that got you thinking: what do I do with all those things I don’t want anymore? Let us give you a suggestion: pack them up and set them aside for the fall rummage sale at First Pres. If you come across items that you know the rummage sale can’t use, what do you do? Here are a few suggestions. If you have old black and white photos that you otherwise would throw out, we know of a school that will use them in art projects. Please let us know. If you have yarn or 100% cotton fabric, our Knitting4Peace Pod can make good use of them creating items of warmth and hope for people near and far. If you have metal items, please think of the metal recycling drive here at church. If you have jewelry or silver/gold items that you no longer want, how about giving them to the Budget Boosters of the church? For further information, please contact the church office at 734-1614. Thank you!
