Our annual "Fundrive" clothing collection event will run from April 1 through October 31, to raise funds for the Reach4Life AIDS prevention and youth development program. We can take these items:

  • Clothes [gently used; not torn or stained]
  • Shoes
  • Purses, belts and backpacks
  • Bedding [no pillows], drapes, towels, etc.
  • No area rugs
  • No stuffed animals

During the drive, contributions can be dropped off on the covered porch at the above address or call 253-946-5953 to arrange a time to drop off larger amounts.

Prevention Time Auction 2022

Fall Auction 2022

October 1 - 8, 2022

Our fall online auction will include Amazon and retail store items, restaurant and retail gift cards, handcrafted and bakery items, plants, baskets and many other unique things! This is a great place to pick up something for yourself and your family, as well as gifts for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or "just because." In 2021, we raised $16,564 for the Reach4Life AIDS prevention and youth development program, and Khayelisha Care for orphans and vulnerable children. We hope to match or exceed that this year!  If you have anything to donate, please contact us on our contact page. Please also consider donating restaurant or retail gift cards. Thanks for your help!

 

Prevention Time Ebay Sales 2022

Garage & Ebay Sales 2022

We will not be having a garage sale this year. However, if you have valuable items ($75 or over) that you'd like to donate, we may be able to sell them on eBay. Items need to be desirable by shoppers, and not too large or heavy. If you're uncertain whether people are interested, go to ebay.com, and enter your item in the search bar. Click on the "Sold" button on the left to see how much it's selling for (You need to be logged in with an eBay user ID to see sold items.) If you're still uncertain, you can give us a call at 253-946-5953 or send us a message on our contact page.

If you have larger items that are in excellent shape and have value (almost new bikes, lawnmower, or whatever), we might be able to sell them on Craigslist or Offerup. Again, give us a call or email us. No furniture items for this venue, please. All proceeds from these sales fund the Reach4Life AIDS prevention and youth development program in South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique, and Lesotho.

Mission Trip

Every other year we take a team of about 15 people from various churches to South Africa. (Click on the photo above to watch a video of the 2018 mission trip.) We will be taking another team when we feel that conditions around COVID allow it.  When we go, we're planning to spend time in Johannesburg, Harrismith, and Durban, teaching Reach4Life lessons in classrooms, helping with school assemblies, and visiting places in the community such as orphanages, drug rehabs, and churches. We'll also do home visits to give the team a chance to speak with the local people. Local Peer Educators join us during these activities, and it's always fun to spend time with the learners (students) and program workers. If you are interested, please send us an email message.

Prevention Time Garage and Ebay Sales 2021

Garage & Ebay Sales 2021

The Federal Way public school district wasn't allowing outside organizations to hold events due to Covid-19, so we were unable to use Sacajawea Middle School for a garage sale. However, we were able to sell some items on eBay, which brought in $1,291.62. Thanks for your help in contributing items to sell on eBay or OfferUp.
