As we reflect on everything that has happened this last year and a half, we realize that this has been a difficult time for so many in our country and around the world. As Christians we want to meet the needs of others through giving. Although not everyone can give financially, we can support our neighbors, as well as those serving around the world by caring for each other's needs. We can communicate, care, serve, and pray.
And we can be thankful.
In the past, we have had fundraisers for specific events in our church, such as group trips and missions outreach to specific recipients. This year we are raising money to strengthen our budget and protect financial commitments to our missionaries and other organizations. Creating a stronger financial positionwill enable us to continue to serve others. For those who do not participate in the auction, here is a direct link to the page to give directly to missions. This gift is totally tax-deductible.
Important –please select Missions on the donation page.
Due to the pandemic, all items are held by the donor until the winning bid is determined, which is the highest offer received when the auction closes. The auction will start October 7th at noon and closes at 12:00 Midnight on October 24th. Winners and donors will be provided each other's contact information in order to arrange a safe way to pick up items or receive services. Some may postpone exchange until a mutually agreeable time, possibly next year as some items are weather dependent.
Since geographical location will affect the exchange of goods and services, this action is limited to residents of Boston's North Shore.
The auction software is developed and operated by a company working with non profit organizations; the fee is 5% of the donation. Starting bid is $25, unless otherwise specified; please consider the fair market value or retail value of the donation as posted by the donor when making your bid, as well as the 5% fee. An auction worker will notify each winner after the auction is closed.
Thank you for your support!
