Fall Sale


Save the Date: October 1 for the Fall Sale for Mission!

The Fall Sale will be featuring clothing and shoes for all ages, jewelry, toys, art, holiday, and some of our favorite departments, French and Bond!

Every year, First Pres holds a Rummage Sale in the spring and fall. The church collects thousands of clean, usable items throughout the year from clothes and accessories to furniture, antiques, electronics, appliances, sports equipment, décor, household goods and many more. Volunteers collect, sort and organize these items to get them ready for each sale.

Since its inception in 1950, this event has contributed more than $5 million to First Presbyterian’s Mission program. Donations and volunteers to help sort and run the sales are always welcome. Donations should be clean; free of odors, stains, tears, holes; and, if applicable, in working condition. Breakable goods should be stored in sturdy boxes and clothing in large, sturdy plastic bags. Donation items can be dropped off at the church between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the week. See our Donation Guidelines for further details. If you need a receipt for tax purposes, please download our Donation Receipt form. For more information, contact Stewart Kerr at


If you are looking for ways to share your gifts in service, First Pres Rummage offers numerous opportunities for you to do so throughout the year.
