The Annual SUMC Yard Sale

Will you pick up my donations from my home?

Pick ups of donations will be limited this year, please contact the church office if you are unable to bring your donations to the church yourself.

I have collectible or other items of known value like jewelry that I would like to donate, where should I bring them?

If you have jewelry or items of collectible value that may not be considered typical “yard sale” donations, please try to drop them off at the church office or directly to a Missions volunteer at time of drop so that care can be taken to store them in a safe location.

When is the last day that I can drop off my yard sale donations?

Staging of items begins on Friday June 21 so it is important that your donations be received by end of day Thursday June 20 so that they can be properly sorted and priced.

Will volunteers be needed to assist with the yard sale?

The yard sale requires many volunteers to process, sort, and price items leading up to the sale; staging and setting up on the day before the sale; and most importantly volunteers needed on the day of the sale to assist customers and help clean up.  To volunteer sign up here.
