Sale items sought for garage sale

When you host what is dubbed the biggest community garage sale on Vancouver Island, you need sale items.

The Caring and Sharing Community Garage Sale takes place June 25-26 at Schooner Cove Marina in Nanoose, but organizers are on the hunt now for gently-used items that will attract garage sale shoppers.

The sale is a fundraiser for Nanoose Community Services, a non-profit organization helping low-income residents in Nanoose Bay.

Schooner Cove Marina is collecting donations and sale items for the garage sale. Drop off days are Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Most Nanoose Community Services clients are single parents – several with special-needs children. The organization also works with seniors, individuals with disabilities and people facing unexpected unemployment or emergencies. Two years ago, NCS opened its Nanoose Bay Community Cupboard, a food bank that provides food to more than 95 local residents.

For more information on donating items to the garage sale, please call 250-468-7691, ext. 413.
