Raising Funds Through Rummage Sale

June 8, 2012, 5:03 PM by Nicole Winters

Raising Funds Through Rummage Sale
TEA, SD -

With budget belts tightened, many school groups have been forced to come up with unique ways to raise money for any extras. Tea Area Middle School and High School student council members are no different; they’re raising money through a rummage sale.

Megan Ganschow may be on summer break, but the Tea Area student is still spending time at school.

"It's just a good way to help out the school; it's fun," Ganschow said.

Ganshow and her fellow student council members from the middle school and high school are volunteering their time to help raise money for their organization through a rummage sale.  Student Council Advisor Maureen Hybertson says the benefits go beyond money.

"They learn how to get prepared, organize, how to promote your adventures to go around and get the community involved," Hybertson said.

Students are in charge of collecting items from the community, setting everything out and running the sale.  That has shoppers like Sherry Grismer excited to buy.

"It's good to see the money come back and stay in the community," Grismer said.

The rummage sale project was chosen to get the community involved, but also because it's a way to go green.

"You're not throwing things away; you're recycling," Hybertson said.

Unsold items will be donated to organizations like the Children's Inn. The money will go toward more charity work during the school year and incentives for the students, like treats for their hard work.

"All of the money goes towards student council adventures and what we do," Hybertson said.

And while she may be giving up a day of summer relaxation, Ganschow's happy to volunteer her time.

"It just helps out the community," Ganschow said.

The rummage sale was put on Friday to coincide with the Tea Area Community wide garage sales.
