Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

On Oct.5,6, and 7, Grove United Methodist Church, 490 W. Boot Road, north of West Chester, will host its fall sale of gen­tly used cloth­ing, toys, chil­dren’s books, and baby equip­ment. Sale hours are Oc. 5, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; and Oct. 7, from 9 to 11 a.m.

Grove hosts this sale twice yearly, and each time des­ig­nates a charity re­cip­i­ent of the pro­ceeds. This time it is buck­ets of sup­plies for flood vic­tims. Last spring’s sale raised over $1,000 for Be­hind the Bars, a prison mu­sic min­istry. The sale en­gages over 50 vol­un­teers in sort­ing the mer­chan­dize and keep­ing items folded and well pre­sented dur­ing the sale. All cloth­ing items are sorted by size and type (e.g., women’s, long sleeved). Lo­cal ser­vice agen­cies are in­vited to rec­om­mend clients to re­ceive free cloth­ing, and last spring 104 fam­i­lies qual­i­fied.

Cloth­ing re­main­ders go to lo­cal shel­ters and sim­i­lar agen­cies. Chil­dren’s book re­main­ders go to the Laun­dro­mat Li­brary League. Note that baby equip­ment (e.g., strollers) are in­cluded n the sale and there usu­ally are no re­main­ders.

Do­na­tions of items may be brought to the church build­ing Oct. 2-4.

Park­ing is free and am­ple. For di­rec­tions, visit For ques­tions, email Cloth­ingMin­ or call 610-696-2663.
