Community Service: Another Successful Wellsprings Friends "Free Sale"

Last Saturday, we had our second "Free Sale" of the year -- offering hundreds (maybe even thousands) of household goods, clothes, toys, and other items for free to anyone who showed up.

It was a beautiful sunny morning in Oregon unlike the snowy day we had for our December sale. Once again, Yancey pulled it all together and the school was ready for people who began arriving before 9 a.m. Here are a few photos of what the school looked like a half hour before the sale started (click to enlarge photos):

Just for fun, after people began arriving, we did a video of the event which includes an interview with Yancey:

Yancey reports that the sale ended up being "the best ever" of the six we've done over the years. Lots of people came, leaving less to store for our next event. And several helpers came to help put things away and restore the school for Monday classes.

Thanks to students and friends who helped with the "Free Sale" and to everyone who showed up on Saturday morning. We hope you enjoy everything you received for your family.

And, dear Yancey, we deeply appreciate the many hours of work you do to make this community service project possible and for all you do for our students and for Wellsprings!
