On Aug. 22, 23 and 24, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas from the St. Joseph Catholic Community will be hosting their annual Rummage Sale, where attendees will be able to browse through many rooms and their hallway and find items such as jewelry, household goods, and even shoes.
Joanne Hungerman, one of the coordinators of this event, said in an email interview that every year the Rummage Sale grows and improves in items and sales and that this happens because of the generosity of the local community.
Hungerman said they started hosting this event in 2006 through the St Joseph Sodality, which is the oldest society of men and women at the church.
“The rummage sale is a giving back to the community event on several levels,” Hungerman said. “First, it helps the community, by inviting them to shop at better than Goodwill prices and knowing that the money that we raise will help local organizations.”
According to Hungerman, last year after the sale they were able to fill a large truck from Greendrop, who then donated the items to the American Red Cross, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, the National Federation of the Blind, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
She also explained that throughout the year, they donated the proceeds to various organizations in the community.
The attendees of the Rummage Sale will be able to buy jewelry, household goods, purses, shoes, holiday decorations, furniture, and all the latest adult and children fashions.
The Rummage Sale runs Aug. 21 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Aug. 22 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Aug. 23 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Hungerman said the CDA #2300 usually holds two or three fundraisers a year and that all of their events are hosted for a good cause. In addition, all of the proceeds are used to assist many charities in the community.
