It is also helpful if folks bring their donations in boxes or bags and stack them as efficiently as possible.
From Milissa:
As you Spring clean, rid out & reorganize, pack up, help someone move, or... whatever you are engaged in this Spring, please keep the Treasure Chest Booth in mind.  We gratefully accept high quality items and are especially appreciative of unique and creative donations (moose head, doll house, windjammer cruise, autographed sports memorabilia).  We appreciate antiques, gift certificates, art, pottery, lamps, boats, cottage rentals or experiences valued at $50 or more.

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to accept sofas, large rugs or items which are heavy and difficult to move, but I invite you to contact me to discuss your particular item/items.

Please call Milissa LaLonde 469-2155 with questions and THANK YOU for considering a donation to the wonderful Treasure Chest Booth at the St. Francis Fair.

A nice big group got it done...and had fun doing it!

Take a look at these and you will know it! 

Ellie, Our hard-working Junior Warden

Bob,  just turn it toward you and it will work!

Mary wants to grow trees in the Sacristy!

Kate was the one who knew what she was doing!

And...Lunch was terrific! Thank you all.We had much fun and left a wonderfully clean church!
Now that St. Francis has stocked the shelves with dental items at TOL, it is time to move on to other essential items not covered by SNAP:  hair products.  Items needed include shampoo, conditioner, barrettes, combs, brushes....anything to do with hair.  The dental items were (and continue to be) very much appreciated....as are the diapers which we shall continue to collect. On behalf of the Outreach committee, thank you so very much for your generosity.
