35th World Hunger Day 2016 Yard Sale
SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 from 7:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Plans are well underway but we need volunteers with serving hearts to make this special event a success. Department heads, sorters, furniture pickup teams, and many others are needed.
What is it?
It is North Mecklenburg's biggest yard sale! It all started in 1982 when a men's prayer group from First Baptist Church felt God's call to feed the hungry around the world. The first year, a yard sale on the church grounds raised more than $1,000 for the Southern Baptist World Hunger Fund. Since then, World Hunger Day has grown to include a huge yard sale, NC BBQ, silent and live auctions, bake sale, and entertainment. All money raised goes to feeding the hungry in North Carolina, the US, and Haiti.
