The Great Giveaway

 

Earlier this summer, my church GENESIS held an event called The Great Giveaway.  This was our way of reaching out and blessing the community of Woburn.  We’re a very new church in the area, and thought this might be a great way to meet our neighbors.  We basically had a HUGE yard sale where everything was given away for FREE!  Hundreds of people came and almost everything was taken by the end of the day (what wasn’t taken was donated to Salvation Army).  It was the coolest thing!  People could not get over the fact that everything was free, and that there were no strings attached.  It was so fun!

We spent HOURS going through all the donations, organizing everything, and then putting it out in the parking lot.  There was a TON of stuff!!

People were lined up at the entrance for hours waiting for the event to start.  It was so cool to watch them run when we opened the gates!

THOUSANDS of items of clothing were given away!
