Garage sale this Saturday will benefit seniors

Organizers of last year’s Langley Seniors Resource Centre’s garage sale were amazed at the huge amount of support they received.

“We raised over $8,000 (and) had a huge outpouring of support from the community, members, volunteers and staff,” said Barb Stack, the centre’s executive director.

“We hope to exceed that this year.”

The garage sale is on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Before that, the organizers will be kept busy sorting through donations and, Stack added, they will accepting donations from between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. every day except Sunday.

The items can be dropped off at the centre, 20605 51B Ave., where the garage sale will be held.

There are some restrictions. Large fabric furniture, car seats, pillows and bedding, and other items that could pose a safety hazard, cannot be accepted.

If people are unsure, they can call the centre at 604 530-3020.

Besides the garage sale, the centre will be selling food, including hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza by the slice and popcorn.

Gift baskets will be raffled off, and to fill them, the organizers are hoping local businesses will make a donation.

The money raised will help the Langley Seniors Resource Society provide resources and programs for seniors living in the community through its recreation centre, outreach services and adult day program.
