Today's Picture of the Day is the Free Yard Sale at Burlington Baptist Church in Burlington on Saturday August 8th. The church had their members donate gently used clothing and then invited members of the surrounding communities who were in need to come and shop for the supplies they needed. All of the items at the sale were provided at no cost, and each family was able to take whatever was necessary to meet their family's needs.
In addition to the free yard sale, the church also provided backpack loaded with school supplies to many of the children who attended the event. The backpacks will allow those children to start school next week with the supplies they will need to get the school year off to a good start.
It was a great event and their were many happy faces around the room as the day went on. Because of the efforts of the Burlington Baptist Church, many members of the community now have the things they need for a successful 2009 school year.
Under the leadership of recently installed pastor Todd Toole, the Burlington Baptist Church is growing and working on many new ways to be of assistance to the members of the Boone County community. You can learn more about Burlington Baptist Church at their official website here.
