Mark your calendars for the 11th Annual Community Garage Sale and Charity Event produced by the Jonville Team on Saturday, May 14 from 7AM to 11AM. This is a great opportunity to clear out some space and do some spring cleaning. Last year, over 130 homes in the communities of San Elijo Hills and Old Creek Ranch participated in the garage sale for a small $10 donation fee with 100% of the proceeds going to local charities.
This year, all the proceeds from participating homes will go to Straight from the Heart and Case De Amparo: a local charity recognized as a leader in treating and preventing child abuse and neglect in San Diego County and beyond, with locations in Oceanside and San Marcos. The non-profit organization annually serves over 1,000 Casa Kids, from prenatal to 25 years old, as well as over 700 families, through six integrated programs that promote healing, growth, and healthy relationships.
In addition to the event charities, every year, neighbors join forces and combine their garage sale items to raise money for their own causes – raising funds for sports teams and their own social causes, for example. The fundraising isn’t confined to just garage sale items, a handful of bake sales can be found throughout the community to feed hungry shoppers.
It is an ideal event to find fantastic bargains and unique items in one location. Shoppers can pick-up a map of participating homes in designated spots around San Elijo Hills the day of the event. To register and get your Garage Sale on the map, visit www.SEHgaragesale.com.
