Yard sale benefit part of cancer recovery
Just a week after good test results, Triad Baptist Church members hope to give the Steve Jones family another blessing in his battle with brain cancer.
Members Julie Johnson and Amy Pine — with support from the Doulos Sunday School class and other Triad ministries and members — are leading a silent auction and benefit yard sale for Jones and his family June 18 in the church’s Activity Center.
Anyone in the church or community can participate through donations of furniture, household items, working electronics, clothing, toys, and other yard sale items. Volunteers will accept and price all the items 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. June 17 at the Activity Center.
A pick-up service also is available for those who have large items they can’t get to the church. Member Luke Ledwell will make those deliveries.
The yard sale June 18 will be 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the silent auction from 8 a.m. to noon. Bidding ends promptly at noon. Baked goods, hotdogs and other refreshments also will be sold.
All unsold yard sale items go to the Winston-Salem Rescue Mission.
“We decided to do the sale right after Steve’s diagnosis,” Johnson said. “There were so many people who wanted to help but we didn’t know what to do. Then Amy mentioned a yard sale. I thought that was a great idea and one everyone could get behind.
“Please help spread the word by sharing the Facebook event page we’ve set up.”
