Welcome to the Pilgrim Church Rummage Sale info page.
Rummage Sales are the primary source of ways and means for the Women’s Auxiliary. They are held twice a year – in October and April. Rummage is collected year-round on Sunday mornings and by appointment with the church office. Almost anything donated will find a buyer – antiques, collectibles, clothing, furniture, household items, jewelry, garage and garden items, plants, small appliances, books and magazines, CD’s and DVD’s, toys, sewing and craft materials, office and medical supplies, sports equipment, and baked goods. The Sigma Chi chapter from Cal Poly Pomona helps with setting up for the sale and putting things away when the sale is over. Women from Crossroads assist during the week getting things ready for the sale. During sorting between sales, any clean but unsaleable towels, rugs or blankets are donated to the Animal Shelter and many coats, jackets, and other items of clothing are donated to non-profits in the area. All other unsold items are donated to local thrift stores. The Rummage sales provide opportunities for people in the community and all around the area to obtain needed items at very reasonable prices.
The proceeds from the Rummage Sales help to support the church operations budget, the youth and music programs, and refurbishing and maintaining the church building and facilities. It also supports our Christian Outreach which includes donations to local and international programs. Local donations this year went to Inland Valley Hope Partners (Beta Food Center), Foothill Family Shelter (for homeless families), House of Ruth (domestic violence shelter), Pomona Police Dept. Crime Prevention (youth camp out), Children of the Night (child trafficking prevention), Mercy House (supportive housing services), Crossroads (rehabilitation housing for women), Hand in Hand (food and Christmas presents for local low-income families), Prison Library Project, and Inland Hospice Association. International donations this year went to Pan American Institute (school in Tijuana), Love Worth Sharing in Haiti, Happy Life Children’s Home (orphanage in Kenya), Pilgrims’ Presence in Kenya, Fishers of Men in Mexico, and Mission Mazuahua in Mexico. Women’s Auxiliary also provides financial support for a group of students from the Pan American Institute to our Church Camp at Cedar Lake near Big Bear for a week each summer. A reserve to meet emergency needs is also maintained.
