Garage Sale and Donations for World Race Mission (Fri. Aug 22, 2014 8:00 am - 2:00 pm)

Contact Info:

1081 Upper Spring Bay Rd
East Peoria, Il 61611

On top of Krispy Kremes, t-shirts, and the passing of the toilet, I am hosting a garage sale at Rock Church on Friday and Saturday, August 22 and 23. 

I am searching for donations to put in the garage sale; I will take anything you are trying to get rid of, or forgot you even had because you haven't seen it in so long.  Check out my blog for more information and let me know if you have any questions!


I leave in January for The World Race, but my first deadline is the last week in September. I need to raise a total of 20,000 and this would be one of my fundraisers.
