Trash to Treasures
TRASH AND TREASURES
Donations can be made on Sundays after church for the Oyster Festival sale.
TRASH AND TREASURES is now accepting your donations until AUGUST 10, THE LAST DAY to donate before the Oyster
Festival. We’ll be at church Thursdays 9 am until at least 1 pm. Give yourself more space in your house and garage
by donating those unused items.
MANY THANKS to those of you who gave us guidelines, history hints or measurements of items you donated! It’s a big
help! We average 6 to 7 volunteers each week to prepare donations for sale. Your generosity keeps us busy, your hints
save us much time!

marking linens (twin, queen, king), saving us a lot of measuring time
marking jewelry and other items that have exceptional value
identifying or giving a history for unusual items
washing glassware and dishes
cleaning all items before donating them

holding off donating plastic and paper grocery bags
