On Saturday, Feb. 28, Kids Market Inc., a non-profit organization, held their semi-annual sale at Rodeheaver on the campus of Grace College. The organization’s mission is “Supporting women and children in Kosciusko County by distributing proceeds generated from consignment sales of infant and children’s items to non-profit organizations in Kosciusko County”. On behalf of Kids Market Inc, we would like to publicly thank the local businesses for their continued support for helping us make our Spring Sale a success:
- Grace College and Wildman Business Group for contributing racks upon racks to hang clothes.
- Boutique Exchange, Dental Solutions, T-Zone Custom Apparel & Signs and Winona Lake Park’s Department for supplies and assistance.
- Applebee’s, Arby’s, Big Apple Bagel, Cerulean, Hacienda, Pizza Hut, Owens, Rabb Kenetico, Rockhill Pinnick LLP, Schoops and Wal-Mart for the donation of food which allowed our volunteers to be energized throughout their shifts for four days.
Also, a thank you goes out to our dedicated volunteers who sign up to volunteer for four hours during the sale weekend. Without our volunteers, this sale would not be possible.
Since the organization’s first sale in the fall of 2001, Kids Market has donated over $189,000 to local non-profits that fall within our Mission. With the help and support from these companies and volunteers, Kids Market’s work is able to make an impact on our community. Thank you for what you do for the women and children of Kosciusko County.
