Garage Giveaway

I thought I would have some "can numbers" to report on how many cans were collected for the Scare Away Hunger event...some of the churches and grocery stores have reported, but not all.  I'll give you the final number once I know how many total cans were collected!  I'll keep you posted!

(Garage Giveaway 2009)

However, if you missed sharing in the Scare Away Hunger event there is another opportunity for you to give.  Coming up this weekend in McKinney - Garage Giveaway!  On Saturday, November 13 Christ Fellowship (formerly McKinney Fellowship Bible Church) is putting on a community wide Garage Giveaway & Social Ministry fair at the Christ Fellowship Campus! This give-away will resemble an enormous garage sale, but there’s a catch: Everything is free!

Everyone in McKinney can donate items to the Garage Give-away! You know you don't really want to sit outside your garage with your few offerings when you can make a huge difference in your community by bringing them to the Garage Giveaway with 1,000's of other items. 

Downsize, thin out, clean out, give away any of the following gently used items:
  • household items
  • gently used clothing for any age
  • small appliances in working condition
  • toys
  • books
  • usable computers and electronics
  • kitchen ware
  • small furniture
  • usable linens.
Please pre-sort your donated items.

Donations will only be accepted on Thursday, November 11 from 4-8 pm and on Friday, November 12 from 7 am to 5 pm at the Garage Giveaway site at Christ Fellowship (2801 Orchid Drive, McKinney, TX 75070). They will NOT take the following items:
  • car seats
  • baby wash tubs
  • cribs
  • playpens
  • highchairs
  • any shoes
  • gas grills
  • any form of flammable liquid.

The most important thing to remember is it’s not about the Stuff, it’s about the hearts of those that are touched through this exciting ministry. This is an incredible opportunity to provide “Blessings From One Person to Another.” Free stuff always gets peoples attention, and 1,000's of donated items are needed.

Along with the huge care give-away, they will be providing personal care services, food, games and much more to all who come. That means there will be hundreds of volunteer opportunities from Thursday, November 11 to Saturday, November 13 for you to be involved. Sign up now to volunteer

Any event this BIG needs hundreds of volunteers...volunteers just like you to touch all the lives God will bring that weekend. Sign up now to volunteer!!

 Isaiah 58:7
"Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not turn away from your own flesh and blood?"

Till tomorrow...

Both of these events sound so practical and creative and timely. It probably takes a lot of organization to arrange them. I love the fun name at Halloween, "Scare Away Hunger".
