This years Free Market was a huge success! The PWOC (Protestant Women of the Chapel) Free Market at Fort Stewart served over 395 families, 1000 people were able to walk through the Chapel doors and be blessed. Our doors were open from 10am-6pm. The line was wrapped around the chapel building.
We began our morning serving smiles, Starbucks coffee and Dunkin Donuts. It was very exciting to see the excitement and joy from the families. As each family came through the doors to shop, each family member could take as much as they needed for their families to include: clothes, housewares, kitchenwares, electronics, shoes, toys, books, games, accessories, children clothes and furniture. All items were donated, some gently used and some brand new.
We were encouraged to know as we greeted the families that they were grateful and thankful for this opportunity. The majority couldn’t understand why it was FREE. My response, “because we want to be a blessing to you and your family just as the love of Jesus Christ is a free gift, we ought to share that love with others.”
