87th Annual Rummage Sale

    Mission Opportunity

    The year marks the 87th anniversary of the Barrington United Methodist Rummage Sale! Be a part of this tradition! Help us celebrate by bringing your treasures and volunteering to make this year a great success!  This is a great service opportunity as well as a time for fellowship, a little work, lots of humor, and a great sense of accomplishment when the profits are forwarded to so many deserving organizations! Can’t come to help that week? We love to provide lunch and snacks to volunteers, so food donations are greatly appreciated!  Do you run errands?  Could you post a sign at some of your stops (coffee shops, stores, dry cleaners, etc.)  All help is greatly appreciated!
