Trash & Treasure Sale

Youth - Trash and TreasureEach year, Rocky River Presbyterian Church (RRPC) organizes a rummage sale, typically the first Saturday of October. This has become a popular event at our Church and for the community. This year’s sale was on Saturday October 7, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Shoppers found their own treasures among gently used goods, unique finds, collectibles, and a variety of items donated by members of our congregation and the community.

Where does the money collected from the sale go? All money raised from the sale of goods is donated to a designated mission (to be determined, coming soon!). This mission initiative raises anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000, so it’s never too soon to start cleaning out those closets, garages, and storage lockers for the next sale!

If you have questions about his mission initiative, contact Mission Chairperson Eric Watts ( to arrange for assistance: NOTE: We will not collect furniture this year.
