More than 10,000 new gift items and holiday decorations, priced from $1 to $20, will be on sale at the 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. event. The bazaar raises funds for the Mountain View Personal Care Home, which houses 35 of DeKalb County's lowest income seniors. Items range from nativity scenes, angels and Christmas pottery and sweaters and fall items for halloween and Thanksgiving. There will also be teapots and dishes.
Mountain View board member Cammie McCarvey said support by the faith communities, companies and individuals helps pay for services for many of the elderly poor.
"Without it, they would have no place to live and no one to care for them," she said. McCarvey said it costs about $1,500 a month to live at Mountain View and that VA or Social Security benefits don't cover the full cost.
"We depend on the generosity of our community of friends, such as Oak Grove, to help fill the gap," she said.
Anita England, the Mountain View volunteer coordinator, described the items for sale as "beautiful and very affordable."
"Our residents need for everyone to come in and browse to buy," she said.
The church is at 1722 Oak Grove Road in Tucker. For more information, call England at 678-973-8758.
