A little rain couldn’t stop this sale!

July 31, 2019Action Teams

Donna M.’s action team was unstoppable, even in the rain! This Action Team was to host a plant and yard sale at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Stratford, Ontario. Under Donna’s leadership, volunteers worked together to plan and organize the event, which included pricing plants and items for the yard sale and organizing refreshments.

Even the local paper, The Beacon Herald, popped in to check out the sale and the article made the front-page news. Donna’s dedicated team of volunteers wore their Live generously NOW t-shirts and eagerly helped shoppers. The $1,500 raised went to support the Emily Murphy House and Shelterlink, where people receive vital community services in their time of need. After the sale all remaining items were donated to the Salvation Army. All in all it was an excellent event to serve the community and we applaud the efforts of Donna’s team for living generously in beautiful Stratford!
