Rainier Senior Center Rummage Sale 2017

A Special "Thank You" goes out to everyone who donated to the Rainier Senior Center Rummage Sale.  We really appreciate everyone who took time out to help with the sale, whether you helped set-up the sale, worked at the sale, priced items, or helped pack-up and clean the center.  We appreciate each and every one of you.  Your time, patience and teamwork made this the greatest sale ever!  

Even though we were very busy at the Rainier Senior Center Rummage Sale, we had a lot of stuff left over.  We extended our sale to go through Sunday afternoon, with $2.00 bags for clothing and 1/2 price for all other items.

We had 3 truck loads of stuff left over that went to a non-profit thrift store in Yelm.  The clothing and bedding that was left over was promptly picked up by two ladies from the Olympia Union Gospel Mission.  

The racks at the Union Gospel Mission were almost empty, before they received our donation.  There are many people in need of warm clothing, so their cupboards were bare.


Look at her sad face...


Our donations FILLED their van from top to bottom.  The bags of clothing fell out of their van when they opened their doors at the Mission...

That's a big smile!!!
