UCS Barn Sale Raised $28,000!
The Barn Sale Committee is proud to announce that their weekend tag sale earned over $28,000 in support of the Northshire United Counseling Service (UCS) outpatient services program. This year’s total was the highest in the three years the event has been held. The Barn Sale Committee thanks the community for their support.
“There was a great buzz around the sale this year and we were very excited about the huge turnout of people,” said Ruth Hoffman of the Committee. “It’s a great way to help those in need and have a positive impact on the Northshire. We’re already planning for next year!”
Proceeds support programming at the Northshire UCS office and help people who do not have the financial resources to get help. The Northshire programs include substance abuse recovery, outpatient mental health counseling, youth and family services and psychiatry.
“We’re working to build a stronger community by helping those in need,” said Peg Gregory, Northshire UCS director. “The success of the Barn Sale demonstrates the close-knit fabric and philanthropic mindset that makes the Northshire such a special place to live.”
A youth group supported by UCS, Teens 4 Change, is invited each year to participate. They ran the concession stand and assisted in parking cars and helping people move large items. “We’re really proud of Teens 4 Change and the entrepreneurial growth they’ve demonstrated over the last three sales. They’re extremely helpful.” said Hoffman.
