OUR MISSION: As an outreach ministry of Columbia Community Church (C3), our goal is to offer families the opportunity to buy & sell new and gently used children's items at affordable prices in a faith based environment. Additionally, we provide assistance to local women's and children's non-profit groups by returning C3's portion of the proceeds in the form of cash or durable goods.
Groups we have assisted in the past include: Benton-Franklin CASA/GAL, Lutheran Community Services, Grace Clinic, Union Gospel Women's Mission, YMCA of the Greater Tri-Cities, The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia, The Tri City Diaper Bank, Safe Harbor Crisis Nursery, SUDS Ministry, Rascal Rodeo, Lourdes Foundation Summer Day Program, and Domestic Violence Services of Benton Franklin Counties.
Columbia Community Church has been hosting the Children's Consignment Sale since April 2009. As a non-profit sale, 70% of proceeds are returned to the sellers, 25% will be donated to Birthday Blessings. The remaining 5% is reinvested into the sale to purchase necessary equipment. Over the past several years, we have donated over $75,000 to charity. Not only do we donate cash to local charities, we also donate unsold clothing and other children's items to other local non-profit agencies.
SHOPPING OUR SALE: Our consignment sale is a collection of new and used children's items from 110 pre-registered sellers. Each seller prepares, prices & tags their own items through an online computer program & brings them to us. From there, we handle the rest including: advertising, set-up and sale of the items. No more running around to different shops, garage sales or responding to Facebook or Craigslist ads, we have it all here for you. Our standards are high! We want to present only the best items to our shoppers and will inspect all items as they arrive (to the best of our ability), and only accept what meets our criteria.
