Faith Lutheran Church yard sale is October 17 and 18

PICKENS — Faith Lutheran Church will have its sixth annual yard sale October 17 and 18. Beginning at 7 a.m. Friday morning household items, clothing, books, furniture, holiday items and baked goods will be sold to help support the Gleaning House, a community food pantry.

Utilizing supplemental funds provided by Thrivent Financial Co., every $1 spent will provide $1.50 to the Gleaning House to purchase food. Because the Gleaning House can purchase food in bulk, this is the most effective way Faith can reach out to the needs of the hungry in our community.

For five years now, with the support of the shoppers in our community and a great many reasonably priced items, Faith has been able to assist the Gleaning House and several other area charities. Thus as a small growing church, this is the most effective way we have to serve the needs of the people near us.

Faith is located at 729 W. Main St., across from the Blue Ridge Electric Co-op. Sale hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Sale items are located in the building for your comfort.
