Donations Make Silent Auction 25 February 2014

We are fortunate to have donors who trust us to honour their donations in the best way possible.  We appreciate what's handed to us at the back door and want to get the most for it, enabling us to pass the proceeds on to Mennonite Central Committee's programs. 

A great example of some of the treasures we receive is this donated 1956 Gibson Sunburst Electric Guitar in very good condition.  It currently sits in our Silent Auction where we hope to garner hundreds of dollars for MCC programs.  If you have treasures to pass along, please consider dropping them off to us. 

And if you'd like to place a bid, drop by Thrift On Kent before this beauty is gone to the highest bidder.
