Twin Lakes WBGS Huge Success!

The World’s Biggest Garage Sale, held on May 17th at Twin Lakes Church, raised close to 200,000 meals! It’s no small thing to pull off an event like this and we are so grateful to everyone for their hard work. Volunteers spent months collecting, sorting and tagging donations before the big sale, which included everything from baked goods and clothes, to electronics and furniture. When the big day finally arrived, thousands of shoppers turned out in search of bargains.
