WATFORD CITY, N.D. - Youth members at the epiphany Catholic Church are busy at work. The youth group brought in a crowd this morning, hosting their first rummage sale.
"We had people coming at 10 asking if they can pay cash and start and by 10:45 we have been up and running so we feel there's a fantastic turnout so far were very excited we started early and yeah it's just been wonderful," said Sandra Crusch, Epiphany Catholic Youth Group assistant.
Members planned three months in advance. Organizers say the event would not be possible without so many community donations.
"Clothes, toys electronics, and shoes basically kind of everything that people have been generously donating for the past day and it's been great," said Olivia Gronos, donator.
Volunteers provided boxes to help fill the shopper's wants and needs. No buyer was left empty handed since everything was under $25.
"All our clothes are 50 cents a piece are shoes are a dollar so I'd say it's pretty affordable," said Zanna Lyon, Epiphany Catholic Youth Group volunteer.
Volunteers are hoping the sale will continue to be a success as proceeds will go towards a trip four members of the church will take this month to Rome, Italy
"We know that some other area youth groups do that in the bigger towns so we called up father and asked is there any way we could make that work and he helped that happen and we were able to open it up to our youth group," said Crusch.
Shopping for affordable household appliances, accessories, or clothing isn't easy, but it sure was here. If you missed your chance to come out to the rummage sale, tomorrow will be the last day at the Epiphany Catholic Church. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
