Garage Sale Items Needed!
Clean your closets, your basement and your garage and donate unwanted treasures to the Community Caring Council’s Family Transition Team for their annual garage sale to be held on Friday, May 21 at Red Star Baptist Church Activity Center, 1316 N. Main Street in Cape Girardeau.
This is the 5th Annual Good Deals for A Good Cause Garage Sale. All proceeds are used to provide unmet needs of families and individuals in our community. Referrals are received and processed by the Family Transition Team, a community committee made up of representatives from 15 or more agencies. Some of the needs met during the last year include transportation assistance, childcare assistance, medical supplies, baby supplies, special needs items, rental assistance, clothing, and head lice treatment.
Most of our donations come from Southeast Missouri State University students. As the students end the semester and pack up to move out, drop-off points for unwanted items are made available in each dormitory. Those items are then collected by Family Transition Team members and volunteers and sold at the sale.
If you have items to donate, please drop them by Red Star Activity Center on Wednesday, May 19 or Thursday, May 20 from 10am – 2pm. For more information, please call our office at 651-3747, ext 104 or 107.
