SUMMER FLEA MARKET CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
Looking for a chance to get out of the house for a few hours? A chance to do something to make a difference? This is it! We've lost several of our dedicated volunteers this past year to death or illness, and are in great need of new volunteers, especially for drop-off days June 11 to July 2, to help with receiving, sorting and tagging items.
The hours are short (9-noon Monday thru Friday and 9-11am weekends.) You can work a few hours, a few days, or a day or two each week – or whatever suits your schedule. It's a great opportunity to meet other parishioners and spend some time getting to know them. And it's a great way to help your parish with a fun and interesting fund-raising tradition! If you can help any or all days call Debbi Lesko 412-694-6149 or the church office 412-469-0196.
