Rummaging for Refugees

A group from St. Mark’s had a unique experience Saturday, June 23rd.  Our church had a “Rummaging for Refugees” project Saturday morning.   The parishioners donated $160.00, and four  members jumped in the Christiansons pickup and drove around town searching out wonderful treasures at garage sales. The New American group in town had given Pastor Paul a list of household needs, and they spent three hours shopping for others. In that time, they filled the pickup box about 1 1/2 times and only spent about $107. The remainder will be used to purchase new items (bed pillows). They came back with a recliner, stroller, rice cooker, several sets of sheets, comforters, glassware, serving bowls, lamps, baby bathtub, so much stuff–Great group of ladies to shop with, and several people donated their own items in addition to this. They were getting in the spirit of summer!
