The Peaches to the Beaches Sale was a great success, especially considering we could only set up Saturday because of the rain on Friday. With your generous donations to sell, we raised $4,008. We will not name each person that helped that day, but we are grateful for each vol-unteer who served. They worked hard with many of them serving from 7AM—6PM. We do want to give a SHOUT OUT to Board President, Ronnie Shivers, and Coordinator, Diane South, for all of their planning. They worked tirelessly to make this event happen.
We want to again say Thank You to Crossroads United Methodist Church, Perry for allowing us to use their parking lot for the sale.
We look forward to seeing you all again in March 2024!
The Belk Charity Sale is a three-day sale event dedicated to supporting local non-profit organizations, such as Family Promise of Greater Houston County.

Purchasing a $5 ticket allowed customers to receive discounts ranging from 15 percent to 70 percent during the sale. They also received a $5 credit on one of their purchases, offsetting the cost of the ticket. Charities receive 100 percent of proceeds from each $5 ticket sold. What a wonderful way to support homeless families in Houston County. The Spring Sale is May 5-7. Get your ticket now and Shop till you drop!
