$1 Clothing Sale back for a second year

Living Faith Chapel hosts two-day event May 3 and 4.
Donations to the sale can be dropped off at Living Faith Chapel April 30 and May 1 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and May 2 from 6 to 8 p.m.

THE BATTLEFORDS — The $1 Clothing Sale is coming back to the Battlefords on May 3 (6 to 8 p.m.) and May 4 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at Living Faith Chapel in North Battleford.

Every item of clothing (including shoes) is only $1. Organizers of the event reflect on the success of last year’s sale and say they are excited to see how this year’s event can once again bless many people in the community while raising money for a great cause.

With the ever-increasing cost of living, to be able to purchase gently used clothing for only $1 provides an affordable option for the community, organizers say. Thanks to an outpouring of community support, last year’s sale sold 3,700 items and gave away at least that amount after the sale. Organizers this year are hoping to exceed this amount.

The $1 Clothing Sale is also a great opportunity for anyone needing a little extra motivation to clean out their closets. Event organizers are seeking gently used clothing donations. Donation drop-off times at Living Faith Chapel are April 30 and May 1 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and May 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. (use the door access from the parking lot). If possible, please label the size of clothing in the bags being donated.

All proceeds from the sale go directly towards Safe Families Canada Battlefords (SFCB). SFCB is an organization that works through the local church to engage Christian volunteers to provide support to families who are experiencing a crisis. Volunteers with SFCB host children in their homes, provide friendship and mentorship and create an extended family-like support system.

This year’s $1 Clothing Sale matching sponsors are Rooted Plumbing and Heating and Fortress Windows and Doors. These businesses have together committed to matching the first $2,000 of sales.

Organizers urge community members to support the event by donating clothing or coming out to shop.
