We need lots of people to sort, display and price all sorts of donated items. On Sale Days we need parking attendants and people willing to help set up and clean up; each of which only takes an hour of your time and is vital to our success.

Feel good about donating your items and volunteering with us because…
Income from the sales goes directly to local, national, and global church-sponsored outreach/charity activities and grants. Last year, with your tremendous support, Second Saturday Sales raised a record amount of money –over $100,000. Income from the Second Saturday Sales has supported all of the St. Thomas’ Outreach missions including local organizations like Episcopal Community Services, Interfaith Housing Alliance, Ministry of Meals, Cradles to Crayons, Visiting Nurses Association of Abington, Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia, the Mattie Dixon Community Center in Ambler, and the Chestnut Hill Meals on Wheels. These programs have provided food, emergency shelter, and educational support to families and individuals across the Philadelphia region, as well as funding the annual Harvest Festival, Be an Angel Christmas party, and the summer camp at St. Thomas’ for inner city children. Nationally, funds have supported the St. Thomas’ Youth Mission trip. Globally, sale income will support the building of water systems in remote villages in Honduras, an orphanage for abused and abandoned girls in Honduras (Our Little Roses), the Global Aids Interfaith Alliance in Malawi, the Hope and Resurrection School in South Sudan, and the Stop Hunger Now Pac-a-thon.
