Donation Policy Update: Attic Treasures
Lydia Abbey- Bazaar 2021

With Bazaar 2021 approaching, donated “Attic Treasures” are still high on our list of requests. Because of limited amount of storage and display space available, we are making changes in our donation policy.
We will only be accepting items that are gently used, clean, rust free, no cracks or chips or discoloration, no missing parts and void of any unpleasant smells. They must be in working condition and marked as such. If the item requires batteries, please check it and mark it as working. We will be accepting donations in the Chapel on the back pew, right hand side, on Sundays after church, Sep. 19-21, and Oct. 3-5. We will also take donations in Lee Hall from Oct. 31 through Nov. 2nd, times to be provided.

We absolutely will not accept any bicycles, lamps, pictures, clothing or accessories, large pieces of furniture, vacuum cleaners, used pots and pans (unless they look like new), computers, computer monitors, telephones, electronics (including TVs and stereos), clear glassware including vases, VCR or cassette tapes, dated crafting books and patterns, hardback and paperback books printed before 2016.

Our requirements are a full heart to praise our Lord God, match pitch, commit to attend rehearsal regularly, and be fully vaccinated. Come join a committed part of Vibrant Worship!!
