Garage sale helps end violence

NANAIMO – National Garage Sale for Shelter goes Saturday (May 11) in support of women and children who have experienced family violence.

Spring is a time to de-clutter, a time to clear out some of those ‘treasures’ you’ve been hanging onto for years.

And what better feeling can there be than to finally have some much-needed space in the garage or basement and help a good cause at the same time?

Royal LePage Nanaimo Realty is taking part in the National Garage Sale for Shelter Saturday (May 11) in support of women and children who have experienced family violence.

Residents can participate by donating gently-used items to the Royal LePage office, 2000 Island Hwy., (Brooks Landing shopping centre) by Friday (May 10).

The garage sale runs  9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and for more information, please call 250-756-1132.

Since 2009, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has raised more than $1.2 million to support women’s shelters across the country and help fund long-term solutions to end violence in Canadian homes.
