Listowel Baptist Church Garage Sale Donation

A Garage Sale That Makes a Difference. 


For over 20 years, Listowel Baptist Church has collected no longer needed goods from their congregation and this generous community.  Collecting, processing and cleaning occurs throughout the year in preparation for the annual garage sale held on the May long weekend. This year’s total proceeds were $14, 800 and were distributed to improve our community and support mission projects in South Africa and Bolivia.  Locally a defibrillator was purchased for the church, an IV pump was purchased for $4,500 for the emergency department of Listowel Memorial Hospital and support was provided to a North Perth YFC/Youth Unlimited summer intern. 


Debbie Loree, head of the garage sale committee stated, “Our goals are to reduce the garbage in the landfill, provide items to those who especially need them at affordable prices, provide a venue to those who must downsize besides raising funds for local and international projects.  The garage sale has grown to a size that only with an army of dedicated volunteers can it happen.”

This is the second year to receive such a generous donation from the Listowel Baptist Church, many thanks!
