Rummage Sale Update

Sep. 24, 2017

September 15, 2017

Dear Fellow STM Rummage Sale Stewards,

Do you feel like something is missing in your life? It’s probably the STM Rummage Sale!

We were a great team and it was amazing what we accomplished with our first rummage sale October 29, 2016. I am looking forward to reassembling the team once again.

The Believe and Grow Together capital campaign is a high priority for Saint Thomas More and it requires most of my attention. As a result, our rummage sale has been delayed. In the meantime, a steering committee has been assembled and they will use the next several months to assess last year’s rummage sale and develop a more efficient approach.  We are calling it Rummage Sale 2.0.

We have tentatively set Saturday, September 29, 2018 as the date for the next Rummage Sale. That gives plenty of time for the steering committee to complete their work and still be ready with a first class event for the fall season. We have also identified four key goals for our rummage sale:

  • Collect and redistribute much needed items to those less fortunate.
  • Help STM parishioners practice good stewardship by providing them an opportunity to donate their possessions.
  • Foster fellowship among the parishioners involved in the rummage sale.
  • Provide financial support to St. Vincent de Paul and to the STM Believe and Grow Together campaign.

As we move forward, we will use these four goals to guide our decisions and gauge our success. I will keep you informed of our progress.

In the meantime, we plan to stay connected with our rummage sale supporters with a tie-in event June 4, 2018 (ten.). Stay tuned.

Yours in Christ,

Mark Kreyche

Stewardship Director
