Forest Hills Presbyterian Church Hosts Its 22nd Holiday Bazaar to support local non-profits, including FLAPDAN

The event, open to the public free of charge, will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, at 709 W. Linebaugh Ave. It will feature hundreds of crafts for holiday decorations and gifts; restored and repurposed furniture; collectibles including antiques and China pieces; as well as jewelry, books and games.

Merchandise will be displayed inside the Larrick Fellowship Hall. And if weather permitting, shopping will be outside in the shady areas of the large campus.  Masks are required in the hall and the numbers of shoppers limited at any given time.

Funds raised through the bazaar are returned to the community with grants to local non-profit organizations, said pastor Claudia Henderson.

“We also present to some local groups for their mission work in other countries,” Henderson said.   For information about the bazaar, see or call the church at (813) 932-6149.

In these times of pandemic and restricted out of state travel, when we have a disaster in Florida we will need to rely on local volunteers to help with debris removal, tarping, mucking/gutting and more. Volunteers will drive to the worksite, After a disaster, a team of commuter volunteers will provide their own transportation to the work site and return home the same day.
