Project Yard Sale 'N More

Project Yard Sale Thanks!
And another OW yard sale is in the books! A HUGE thank you to Pastor Lebo, and the members of McBic, for once again allowing OW to 'move in’ for a few days. Thank you to our ‘moving crew’ – Bill Richie, Kaleb Dissinger, Curt Sober - along with Johnny Wilson– who transported over 50 skids from our warehouse to McBic. The boxes were hauled into the church by students from McBIc’s Youth group, MASH football and wrestling teams, as well as many student and adult volunteers. And of course, thank you to Bruce Barclay, who continues to believe in our mission and has given us a huge warehouse space to store all the donated items.


This sale would not happen without the most dedicated group of volunteers – Kristin Funk- Adleblute, Diane Koenig, Margene Harper, Susan Johnson, Gail Perez, Jean Long, Nadia Renoll, Kathy Wargo, and Gerry McCracken who week after week work at the warehouse sorting, cleaning, pricing, and packing each and every donation that comes through our doors. These ladies are truly the heart and soul of Project Yard Sale. To Janice Deveney and Nora Gulden – how many years and how many late nights you are the last ones to leave and the 1st to return the next day! To Leslie Collins who for years has overseen the set-up and tear down of close to 100 tables - thank you for always making sure we’re ready to go! Thank you to volunteers from Americhoice, West Shore Free Church. and Harrisburg Christian Academy - set-up was a breeze! To the Young Marines who helped tear down tables on Saturday - thank you! To those who worked at the sale – thank you for all you did - whether it was check-out, straightening tables, or helping carry purchases to vehicles – each and every one of you contributed to the success of the sale! To the clean-up crew - especially Bruce and Stephanie Yerger who always vacuum McBic from one corner to the other- we are beyond grateful for your help at the end when everyone is the most tired. Thank you to Michael Garland who helps put a 'bug' in the ear of local media to get the word out - the crowds just keep getting bigger and bigger.


To the new volunteers - thank you for giving of your time and you willingness to help where ever it was needed. To the ‘seasoned’ volunteers – thank you for being a part of this journey time and time again.


Seventeen years ago our 1st yard sale raised $300 and we were on a roll! Never did we think that we would be transporting skid upon skids of donations and fill up a huge room all thanks to the wonderful donations from our community. The sales have truly grown - way beyond our wildest imagination. These semi-annual yard sales now help fund the many projects that OW supports. So now that you've read to the bottom - what was the total?? Our 2-day total was $19,755! – absolutely unbelievable! Since that first yard sale OW has raised over $310,686.

See you in 180 days – October 18 and 19, 2024.


And keep bringing those donations to the OW warehouse - we are open every Saturday and Sunday from 1-3 PM!
