JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Aisles of baby clothes, toys, strollers, and cribs are filling up First Baptist church in Jackson this weekend. It’s all apart of the Little Feet Consignment sale where shoppers can find cheap deals, while helping out a great cause.
This weekend nearly 55,000 new and gently used baby items will fill up the church gym of First Baptist church.
The Little Feet sale began in 2012 as a way to raise money for mission trips. They have held two sales a year since then. So far, they have raised almost $45,000.
Buried Treasures is one of the missions that has benefited from the consignment sale. It’s a ministry for women coming out of addiction or prison.
“I actually went through the program first but I am hired staff now. I am just excited to be here to volunteer and help,” said Rosemary Bravo.
Bravo was an addict and spent three years in prison.
“I accepted the Lord while I was in prison, from prison I went to the ministry Buried Treasures home for women who beat addiction and got out of prison. I have done both!”
Bravo says if it wasn’t for ministries like Buried Treasures she doesn’t know where she would be today.
“From an addict, to someone who can love people and receive love. I am a walking example for other women to see all they can benefit from.”
Eren Voss has been volunteering with Little Feet for the past six years.
Voss says, “This is a place for you to come and be apart of the community. To be shown the love of Christ, and to be around other loving people.”
All of this is possible because of Little Feet’s team leader, Melinda Brown.
“It’s a great opportunity to support missions. When you can’t be apart of going, you can be apart of giving and ministering to people.”
