Local Sale Brings Hope and Security to Families in Mexico

Posted in

EVENT DATES: Drop Off/Pick up–Wednesday, March 9 and Thursday, March 10.
Sale–Friday, March 11–8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 12–8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

A lock on your door. A lock on the front door to your house is something we often take for granted in our country. In northern Mexico, many families live without the peace-of-mind a simple lock can bring. For more than 30 years, the High School Youth Group from Jacksonville Presbyterian Church has traveled to Mexico to build homes and provide safety, security, and hope for families. 

In June, a team of high schoolers and adult volunteers will give up a week of their summers to travel down to Mexico to build a house with a locking front door for families in need through Amor Ministries. Our annual yard sale is not only a large financial contributor to this trip, but it is also a way for our entire church and the community to be involved in changing lives. 

The Mexico Mission Yard Sale usually coincides with the Jacksonville City-Wide Sale each September. With the dramatic rise of COVID cases last September, the sale was postponed. 

The Mexico Mission Yard Sale is set for Friday, March 11, 8am – 6pm and Saturday, March 12, 8am-2pm at our church campus at 425 Middle Street in Jacksonville. As usual, bargain hunters are sure to find furniture, clothes, books, electronics, trinkets, toys, tools, sporting goods, and more! 

Community members with items to donate to the sale can bring them to 425 Middle Street Wednesday, March 9, 8am – 7pm or Thursday, March 10, 8am – 7pm where a team of volunteers will be available to help unload. For larger items such as furniture that are more difficult to transport, please give the church office a call at 541-899-1287 to schedule a free pickup on Wednesday or Thursday only.

Whether you volunteer, donate, shop, or pray—thank you, and we hope to see you at the yard sale.
