Attic Treasures and Bake sale supports Hurricane Irma relief effort


The fall Attic Treasures and Bake Sale is the perfect venue to shop for gently used household items and collectables.

The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14 at Suntree United Methodist Church. Among the treasures to be found are cookware, glassware, antiques, jewelry, books, toys and sporting goods. All will be available for reasonable prices.

This once-a-month event is sponsored by the Dorcas Circle, a group of faith-based women who are committed to community service. Proceeds from the monthly sales are donated to one of four charities: Daily Bread, Devereux, the Salvation Army Women’s Shelter or Gabrielle Place.

“We are a diverse, charity-based group and our main purpose is to serve others,” Dorcas Vice President Patricia Ryan said. “We have four main charities that we serve, but this month, our mission is obviously Hurricane Irma.”

Suntree United Methodist Church is supporting the mission for hurricane relief to all those affected in our community, the Caribbean and Houston. Dorcas Circle members are participating in that effort. Attic Treasure shoppers can enjoy delicious baked goods from Dorcas’ finest bakers while they shop for that perfect gift, small appliance or household item.

“The Dorcas Circle consists of a group of approximately 50 ladies who meet monthly for the purpose of doing community service,” Ryan said. “We take our authority from the Holy Bible (Acts 9:36-43). Dorcas spent her life doing good deeds and helping the poor. The Circle’s mission is to follow Dorcas’ example.”

Dorcas Circle appreciates contributions for the upcoming sale. Items can be brought to the Suntree United Methodist Worship Center from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13. Dorcas cannot accept old computers, old telephones, old electronics or clothes.
