Upscale Resale

EATONTON, Ga. —  In September, The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer’s Upscale Resale Committee reached out to Putnam Christian Outreach (PCO) to announce that the 2021 Upscale Resale event would be benefitting the Putnam and Greene County Food Pantries. 

The Upscale Resale is a fundraising event held by The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer where donated handbags and jewelry are resold to generate funds for the local community food pantries. The committee exceeded their goal and has generously donated $12,000 to the Greene and Putnam County food banks. 

“We are so grateful to receive part of this substantial donation from the wonderful ladies of the Upscale Resale team and the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer. These funds will help us to serve many more individuals who come to our monthly food drives,” said PCO Executive Director Vanessa Jackson, “Last year we provided food assistance to over 2,800 families. We are so thankful for the generosity of this community.”

2021 marks the third year of the Upscale Resale event, and the largest event held thus far. The Upscale Resale Committee is now gearing up to prepare and gather donations for next year’s event.

“Our team is so thrilled to have been able to double our fundraising goal for this year, and now be able to give to both Greene and Putnam County food banks. We would not have been able to achieve this without the many kind donations of handbags and jewelry given from members of our community,” said Connie Karpinsky, Upscale Resale committee head.
