Bargain Festival set at church
Neighborhood Congregational Church will host its annual Bargain Festival from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 28, to raise funds in support of the church's mission and ministry work and the Laguna Beach Resource Center. Church volunteers have already begun collecting donations of clothing and shoes, household items, furniture, children's toys and supplies, collectibles, antiques, and electronics.
Donations are welcome throughout these next two weeks, as volunteers sort and label the many items. Next week, volunteers will begin transforming every corner of the church facility into a shopping mall, complete with designer clothing in the "women's boutique," a children's department, an electronics room, bargain clothing room, tools, sporting goods, and a furniture area in the church parking lot. Preparation is time-consuming, but fills the church halls with laughter and friendship as workers perform the many tasks to make the Bargain Festival a success.
