Sophie’s Experience Working with the Cornwall Rummage Sale



Over the summer, I volunteered in helping set up a rummage sale in Cornwall Conecticut set up by the Cronwal Women’s Soceity.  There were six or seven highschoolers who helped move things around and organize the different donations.  The week of July 11th we all arrived at 9 am and left at noon.  During this time we sorted the donations that had been left outside of the buidlilng into specific rooms for sale.  That weekend, we helped with the sale.  All the profits made go to local matters, such as scholarships for children who graduate from the local public school and general maintnance work around the town.  All items that were not sold were given to Good Will.

It was really fun to work with the highschoolers from the local school.  These students would receive the scholarships from the profit.  It was nice way for these students to help out in something that will really end up benefiting them.
