Trinkets and Treasures Returns!

Jun 30, 2023 | Beacon, Justice, Khasi, News

Trinkets and Treasures is our annual church sale that benefits the Friendship School operated by our Unitarian partners in the Khasi Hills of India. East Shore’s members have always been so generous in helping us run the sale and contributing items to be sold. We’re glad to be back after two successful PartnerPalooza events during Covid!

We’ll hold the sale in the Sanctuary Building on August 3-5. August 3rd is a special members-only presale event.

We’re asking you to please step up to this challenge again during the first week of August. Here’s how you can help:

  • Save your stuff for the sale! We need usable clothing for all ages, sizes, and shapes, plus usable housewares, sheets, towels, dishes, sports equipment, toys, games, art, jewelry, special items and more. We won’t be selling books, large electronics, or furniture this year.
  • If you need to unburden yourselves of any items right now or won’t be here in August to deliver them to the Sanctuary, please contact Doug Strombom. We have a back-up plan.
  • Step up and volunteer! We need helpers to sort, organize, price, and sell all the donations. We’ll begin collecting items in the North Room after worship service on Sunday, July 30, through Wednesday, August 2. We’ll have volunteer job opportunities all week until the sale ends on Saturday, August 5.

This sale finances the Khasi Hills Friendship school for an entire year! Every donation counts. Thank you in advance!
