‘We should so work as if we were to be saved by our works; and so rely on Jesus Christ, as if we did no works.”-Francis Asbury, One of the Original Bishops of The United Methodist Church in America.

A converted area that is a place for worship on Sundays, will be giving a helping hand to the kids and charities of the community this weekend with Lil’ Angels Attic. Parents and kids in Bowling Green have a unique way of stocking up on clothes toys and other needed items, through the event hosted by Broadway United Methodist. Lil’ Angels Attic at Broadway United Methodist has been a great helping hand to the families of Bowling Green as well as the charities. Lil’ Angels Attic is a biannual children’s consignment sale raising funds for local children and family charities. Previous charity recipients include The Family Enrichment Center, New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding, CASA, Pregnancy Support Center, and Big Brothers & Big Sisters, just to name a few.
Thousands of items will be on sale like Girls clothing (infant to size 20), Boys clothing (infant to size 20), Maternity Clothing, Toys, Books, Children’s furniture, Games, Movies, Video Games, Nursery Items, Swings and So Much More. The big event starts this Friday at 9am-7pm and Saturday 9am-12pm.
Since it’s inception in 2002, they have donated over $500,000 in cash and merchandise to various organizations. They also pick one charity each sale to be their Heaven Cent charity, which donations are made specifically by asking each shopper as they check out to donate a dollar. This alone has raised $10,000 over the years, all of it run by volunteers. To keep updated on Lil Angels Attic and their needs fan them on facebook. Also don’t forget to check out their website!
