Thank You from our Ladies’ Aid to everyone who participated in our brat/hot dog fry last month. The table offering for parsonage appliances came to $495.00, with a few more commitments still to be received. Together with the $500.00 previously saved, we will be able to replace one of the parsonage kitchen appliances promptly when needed.

Dime & Dollar Continues to Grow: Since we opened our doors in June in Wisconsin Rapids (at 1351 8th St. S.), the store has enjoyed great success. We have received many quality donations and made record sales in the last three months with the profits going to Northland Lutheran High School. Also, thanks to many of you, the number of volunteers we have helping at the store has increased tremendously.
We continue to need more help as donations continue to pour in and inventory changes daily. We need more manpower on donation days to process incoming items. Consider a few hours a week or several days a month. Whatever works for you, we can make it happen! Please call the store at 715-421-2030 or stop in to pick up a volunteer application. Christmas Sales begin on Monday, October 25 with our reveal of hundreds of items to help you decorate and celebrate the holiday. Before that can happen, we will spend the weekend of October 22-24 resetting the store and preparing for the season. Pencil in those dates on your calendar to help in some way to make this a glorious season to celebrate! Fall Hours: Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; Saturdays: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Beginning October 25 these hours will be expanded to weekday evenings and later Saturday afternoons to accommodate Christmas shoppers.
Donation Days and Times are Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00p.m. and Thursdays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. We are currently overwhelmed with donations, so please try to limit your items to just four boxes or bags per visit. We appreciate your bringing seasonal items only as we have limited storage. We are collecting fall and winter items now. All items must be clean and in good working order.
