July 27, 2018 — Emmanuel Church will hold its 112th annual Family Fair on Saturday, September 15 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The popular fair's tents always offer opportunities to buy gently used treasures that have been generously donated. The church (and the fair) are at 285 Lyons Plains Road.
The church is ready to accept donations now. You can drop off yours at the parish hall on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm and Sundays between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon. Additional collection dates on Saturdays between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm will begin August 20.
If you would like items to be picked up, you can make arrangements with the parish office by calling (203) 227-8565.
Here are the kinds of items, all in good condition, that can be donated: toys, art, collectibles, jewelry, and furniture. The church cannot accept books, VHS or cassette tapes, bedding, clothing (except women's scarves and belts), cribs, stuffed animals, playpens, car seats, garden items or electronics.
Bicycles and scooters can also be donated. A complete list of items that can and cannot be accepted can be found at the church website.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible.
