This started as an idea from a friend
and has turned into a family favorite for 8 families!
and hearts willing to give, turned a cold day into a
LOVE, LAUGHTER, and JOY by all!
From young to old we all came to help.
We had 8 families and a ton of kids that served their community.
This was a total family involvement we ALL enjoyed!
Each year the kids now ask me, "When is the FREE garage sale?"
They are eager and ready to give their stuff away!
While parents shopped there was a jump house for kids
and face painting offered by the teens!
We even grilled hot dogs on this cold day!
Cookies were there for the extra touch of something special!
The stories of the people coming to shop as they were stunned we were just giving it away! The tears of how this met a specific need, the husband that had lost a job, the sick mother that couldn't provide for her family, the teen that now had a nice shirt for his first job interview, the grandmother that was able to give a bike on Christmas morning, the love that was given for no other reason than God loves us so we can LOVE others!
Our tears as we watched those that had shopped and found those things they needed to leave and then return bringing their things that someone else might need! It was a moment of perfection to watch things come and go as everyone pitched in to make it a special day for each other!
Who knew that 3 years ago an idea
