Local business helps raise $58,000 for student group;Access Self Storage and First Baptist Church continue partnership
LANCASTER – As they prepared for their annual summer mission trip, the youth choir of First Baptist Church eagerly accepted the aid of local business Access Self Storage, to the tune of $58,000.
As in years past, Access donated moving trucks and storage spaces to the choir to prepare for the world’s largest garage sale, a yearly event that is the choir’s single largest fundraiser.
This year, the garage sale, which was held in Fair Park’s Grand Place exhibition hall, brought in nearly $60,000 to offset the cost of sending two hundred vocalists, instrumentalists and leaders to the East Coast for a 10 day tour.
Access’ affiliation with the choir has been a long running blessing to both organizations and one that has enabled almost a thousand students to see portions of the world they might otherwise be unable to visit.
