Items include clean, gently-used clothing, furniture and appliances. The event will be at the church building, 5455 Charles St., Rockford.
“Our goal again this year is to be a channel of blessing to help alleviate some of the financial stress that so many are continuing to experience,” said Pastor Steve Doyle.
Donations will be accepted each day from 9 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m., through Saturday, Aug. 16, at the church building. Anyone from the community is welcome to donate and will be offered a receipt for their charitable gift.
