Annual Rummage Sale

About the Sale

Rumage VolunteersThe Saint Paul’s Annual Rummage Sale has been a tradition for so long that no one remembers which year it actually started. Each year, the proceeds from this massive sale go towards local charities working to end hunger and homelessness. Preparations for the event begin in the summer, with donations accepted on Wednesdays and Sundays, and the doors open to the public on the weekend after Labor Day.

Contribute

If you‘ve been thinking about cleaning out your attic, basement, or that hall closet that is overflowing with stuff, now is the time to do it! If you have a chance to pre-sort the items, that is appreciated, but not necessary.

Please share this donation opportunity with friends, neighbors and colleagues. The success of the sale is based on the quality and quantity of items available. Tax letters are available on all collection days in the main Parish Hall.

Volunteer

Volunteers are what make the Rummage Sale great, and we are always happy to see new faces! We have a little something for everyone, from leadership positions to one-time volunteer shifts. If you are interested in volunteering with us, contact us any time at rummage@stpaulschestnuthill.org
