AREA:  May 2, 2014 –  Community Congregational Church in Short Hills will once again be holding its semi-annual Rummage Sale for Charity to benefit those in need in our local communities.  The Spring Rummage Sale for Charity will be held on Saturday, May 3rd from 9am-2pm.  This Community Church sale is unique in that all proceeds go directly to community work and grants programs, including the newly launched “Oasis” program that provides food to middle school students in Irvington every month, the “Mobile Meals” program, which feeds 200 homeless in Newark every month, as well as scholarship grants and programs with Harmony Education and Life Partners in Irvington.

Senior Minister of Community Congregational Church, The Reverend Johann Bosman, said:  “The Rummage Sale for Charity at Community Church helps us to help others.  All of the money raised goes to benefit those in need.  People who have donated items to the sale get the benefit of knowing their items will be put to good use.   Those who purchase at the sale are getting great bargains, so it all comes full circle. We invite everyone in the community to come out and support the event.” 

The Rummage Sale for Charity includes a Boutique section for higher-end Women’s and Children’s clothing.  The sale also includes furniture, housewares, electronics, toys, and sporting equipment.  Donations of gently used items are accepted 24 hours a day at the drop box located behind the church.  TVs, computers, books or large exercise equipment cannot be accepted.
