A little church in Chugiak is making big waves in the grant department, helping Alaskans across the state. It was just an idea almost 10 years ago: recycle and reuse and raise money for needy causes. Kay Abrams and her United Methodist Church in Chugiak are pioneers in setting up an amazing fundraising machine for their church’s missions. It all started with the idea of raising money for the church, but that idea was trumped for a better one: raising money for worthy causes. Abrams, along with lots of volunteers and support from her pastors, has taken the simple idea of yard selling to the next level, using what would be discarded items and reselling them with no price tag! The idea has been a winner for the church and charity causes across the state.
