Goals and Objectives
The St. Thomas Garage Sale is a fundraiser for the parish. It serves the greater community by providing good quality merchandise at reasonable prices. The Garage Sale has grown to be one of the largest in Peoria, with many people depending on it. We receive donated items from members of the parish and others in the community. Pick up of large items can be arranged and tax donation forms are available.
Who we’re looking for
Volunteers are needed for many tasks, including: sorting, checking & pricing merchandise; setting up & taking down the fixtures, hauling large items, organizing departments, manning cashier stations, selling concessions, cooking for the work crews, baking for the bake sale. There are jobs for volunteers of many skills, whether for a few hours or for several days. Individuals with mechanical, electrical, computer, and electronic knowledge are needed in specific departments.
The Garage Sale is held twice each year in the old gym, usually in April and October. The Garage Sale includes concessions and a bake sale.
