FPCR Garage Sale » Saturday, May 14
The date fast approaches for the FPC Garage Sale. This Sunday, May 1st, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m., we will be accepting your items for the sale. You will need to use the Walton St. entrance (the far east entrance) to the CE Building. The Plano Civic Chorus is giving a concert in our Sanctuary at 4:00 p.m.that day and we do not want to interrupt that in anyway.
I do need volunteers to help in the building that afternoon. Some people have already offered to help, but I need some men who would be able to help unload cars and move things around in the building. This is a BIG job and we need everyone to help in some way. Please don't say you don't know what to do. We will give you a job!
I have several men with pickups who have offered to pick up items to be donated. They cannot, however, lift everything by themselves. Would you offer to be a partner in that deliver and ride along? Let me know immediately and I will assign you to a partner with a pick-up.
For the next two weeks, I will be at the church working everyday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. You can continue to bring things during that time. I also need you to just come and help during those hours. Again, there will be job for you! Just SHOW UP ready to work. I need men and women for these jobs. Some of the items to be priced need a man's perspective. (You do not want me pricing nuts and bolts.)
We have divided the garage sale into categories and I need help in some of the specific places. Would you be willing to sort clothing and arrange it? That will be a big job, but one that brings in quite a bit of revenue. I would also like to have some of our young moms agree to help sort, arrange and price the children's items that are being brought in. That is another area that generates a lot of interest.
This Sunday, there will be sign up sheets available in the Welcome Center for the day of the actual Garage Sale. We need lots of people to sign up for that day and a variety of jobs are available. Mostly, we need you to be welcoming and gracious to our customers so that they are inclined to keep buying! Look for those lists.
