[March 29, 2014] AGAPE CHARITY RUMMAGE SALE (Children/Maternity/Parenting-Related)

AGAPE CHARITY RUMMAGE SALE - March 29th, 9:00am - 1:00pm
Dear Parents and Friends of City Playgroup,
We are excited to announce that the AGAPE charity rummage sale will be on Saturday, March 29th, from 9:00am - 1:00pm. As most of you may know and remember, this rummage sale founded by parentpages families in 2004 has grown so much over the years that it became overwhelming for the group to continue to manage it, and it was adopted by AGAPE ICA Church in November 2011.

We are very grateful to all of you who will make donations over these next few weeks, through drop offs and directly on the day of the sale. This time all cash proceeds will be given to Mustard Seed Mission, and their Ai-Hsin Children's Home. The website link: http://www.mustard.org.tw/ah_home/index_e.asp

All remaining items will be donated to either a local infant / toddler orphanage in Taipei City and to charities working with aboriginal villages of Taiwan, of which both we have donated extra things to for several years now.

This is a bi-annual event that allows families to reuse and recycle, as well as de-clutter for a good cause. We are asking for donations of infant and children's clothing, books, toys, and infant and maternity related items since these things have always been the main focus of our rummage sale.

Please Note: the only furniture we can take is infant related such as beds, strollers, playpens, and highchairs, etc.

We have been very encouraged by those who have stepped forward already to volunteer and ask that if you are interested to help in sorting, or setting up and/or working at the sale on the day, to please respond to this e-mail. We need and appreciate any help you can give! Those who volunteer for a few hours will have an opportunity to select up to (5) items they wish to purchase while sorting and at 8:30am for those who will help on the sale day, as a gesture of appreciation.

Sorting & Set Up Dates
Thursday, March 27th: 1:00 - 4:00pm
Friday, March 28th: 10:00am - 4:00pm

Volunteers are always welcome on the morning of the sale for help at the tables selling from 9:00am - 1:00noon, and packing up from 1:00 - 2:00pm.
