The sale could not happen were it not for our volunteers, consignors, and shoppers who spent countless hours setting up, running, shopping at, and then breaking down this event. We love seeing new faces as well as many repeat shoppers, consignors, and volunteers. Even if you are not a PT member, your continued participation in the sale makes you a part of our larger PT community! Thank you for feeling so passionately about the sale.
The amount of donated items for this sale was profound, so our sincere thanks to those who made the decision to donate their children’s clothes, toys, and equipment. We depend on your donations for the sale to be successful!
Many local businesses also donate goods and services, which improve the sale’s flow. Copley Motors provided significant funds to help us pay for the supplies we needed to keep the sale running smoothly. Gentle Giant donated multiple trucks, and sent us exceptional movers who made sure all donated items, clothing racks, and supplies were moved in and out of the church efficiently and safely. We appreciated JC Timmerman’s donation of two large and incredibly useful dumpsters that simplified our set up and clean up activities. PODS donated a storage unit that was essential while we collected the generous local donations. Urbansitter defrayed marketing costs. In addition, each of the following businesses graciously donated food to keep our sale committee energized over the three days it takes to run the sale: 3 Squares, Comella’s, Hazel’s Bakery, Hint Water, New Garden, The Rice Barn, Roche Brothers, Starbucks, Stone Hearth Pizza, Sweet Corner, Treat Cupcake Bar, and Whole Foods Wellesley.
Finally, a very special thank you goes out to everyone at Christ Episcopal Church. Your support is essential to our ability to execute the sale well, and we greatly appreciated the input of Julia Baker and Michael Beagan.
In all, we want to say a big THANK YOU to Needham volunteers and businesses for proving that there are truly amazing people out there and that our great community is one of a kind!
Parent Talk relies almost exclusively on volunteers, and this spring over 200 of them helped out throughout sale weekend. All proceeds benefit Parent Talk’s community work and events, and all unsold items were donated directly to local charities that depend on these goods to fulfill their missions.
