2. Contact city, county, state, and federal agencies

3. Distribute flyers/brochurs to shelters, food pantries, etc. 

Inventory Getters

 2. Clean your closets and leave in  box(es) on your porch .   

3. Spread the word to your email and social media contacts.

Money Finders

If you like going to yard sales you'll love racking up volunteer hours helping us get the FUNdraiser set up each morning and packed up both afternoons, sticking prices on items and/or tables, answering questions, taking shoppers on a quick tour of [air-conditioned] MPNFP, and overseeing FUN stuff like rock painting and digging for treasure. You decide when and how long; this sale is going to be at least twice as big as last year's so we'll appreciate your help whether you give us 2 hours or 2 days.

In case you missed it at the top of the Home page the dates are Friday June 4th and Saturday June 5th, with Sunday June 6th on deck if we get rained out either day.
