Fundraising Yard Sale, July 30th, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Have things to donate? Love to bake cookies to sell? Like to shop yard sales? We’re looking for help at a yard sale fundraiser to benefit the 2011 Women’s Service Day project.

This year, Women’s Service Day celebrates its 10th anniversary with a focus on neighborhood revitalization and an opportunity for volunteers—alongside neighbors—to create “pride of place” in an area of the City of Holland that needs it badly. We plan to renovate a house in the Westcore neighborhood and turn it into a community center called Nuestra Casa/The Gathering Place for the residents who live there.

A yard sale, organized by Westcore neighbors, is planned for this Saturday to help raise money for the renovation.

Date: Saturday, July 30th
Time: 9 A.M. – 2 P.M.
Location: 238 W. 15th Street (parking lot of Fourth Reformed Church)
Why: To raise money for renovation of a community center at 253 W. 15th Street

How you can help:
