Teresa Cowan Jones, our administrative assistant, has been on a mission to help us raise funds for gas for our vans and for office supplies. She met with the manager of Savers and they added us to their non-profit charity program. Savers pays by the pound for goods that are brought in. From clothing to books and housewares, all items are weighed and accounted for.
Teresa has made the rounds to community garage sales, collecting all sorts of donated goods. The collected items are taken to Savers on designated Monday mornings.
We appreciate Teresa’s sacrificial generosity with her time at the office and on the weekends gathering donations for us.
If you have time to help, we need a few good men or women to help on Monday mornings. We are also looking to purchase a reasonably priced box trailer so we can store the donations.
More information will be posted soon on a giving campaign to make this helpful version of recycling and fundraising work smoothly.
