Yard Sale Raises Over $500 for Neighborhood Center

The yard sale held on July 30 raised over $500 for Nuestra Casa/The Gathering Place. Thank you to everyone who contributed baked goods and other items to the sale.

Nuestra Casa/The Gathering Place is a vacant house that will become a neighborhood center where neighbors can hold book groups, cooking classes, canning classes, mentoring activities, music lessons, crafts for kids, reading activities, and work together in a community garden. This year Women’s Service Day celebrates its 10th anniversary by working side-by-side with Holland’s Westcore neighbors, New Community Church (formerly Fourth Reformed) and Good Samaritan Ministries to renovate the house.
