Many churches, meetings, peace groups and individuals raise support for the work of CPT in creative ways. We share your stories as a way to say “Thank You!” and as an inspiration to others.
Columbus (Ohio, USA) Mennonite Church holds an annual rummage sale which raises up to $3000 for CPT. The church is located on a main road in Columbus, so that helps bring in customers. Everyone seems happy to get rid of unused things and people really pitch in and have fun. It’s a two-day event, and the last hour is “fill-your-bag-for-a-dollar.” That’s a huge hit! What doesn’t sell goes to the local thrift store. It takes some work to organize but it pays off.
