Garage Sale/Scrap Metal Drive

Smithville 2015 HANDS Team:

In prepration for our trip to Nicaragua, our team set out to raise some funds via a (hopefully) GIGANTIC garage sale and scrap metal drive. 

We planned the date, discussed the details and proceeded to hold the sale and drive. The garage sale was a great success. We were pleased to see a large amount of support from our church family as well as from our local community. 

We also picked up numerous loads of scrap metal, and the drop off bin we had placed at the church filled to capacity at least three times. 

Thank you to all who donated garage sale items and helped out during the day. Also, a large thank you goes out to V&R Recycling for supplying the scrap metal bin. 

This was also the first real opportunity for our Hands Team to pull together as a team, to work together and to get to know each other better. That feeling of bonding, as a new team is an interesting and exciting "bonus" of being involved with a Hands Team.
