The Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families Club announced more than $16,000 was raised at its biannual consignment sale. The sale, held on Saturday, October 4 at the Salisbury Boys & Girls Club, is an organized shopping environment where individuals sell and purchase gently used baby and kids clothing, toys, and baby gear. Seventy percent of the proceeds go to the seller, and thirty percent goes toward a community gift, which is given in the club’s name.
“We are thrilled to announce that the sale raised more than $16,000. Close to $5,000 of that will help provide important financial support to the local community,” said Kristen Jackman, president, Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families Club.
“Our consignment sale team is chaired by four dedicated GNFC board members and runs smoothly with the help of many volunteers. Their long hours and hard work make our community gift a reality. It is very important to our club to give back, and this is just one of the many ways we are fortunate to do so.”
Past donations from the GNFC consignment sales have been made to the Anna Jaques Hospital Gerrish Breast Care Center, Amesbury Town Park Renovation Committee, the Newburyport Rail Trail Project and the renovation of the Kids’ Lounge at the Turning Point Shelter. The GNFC board will announce the recipient of the next community gift in early 2015.
