2nd annual garage sale right around the corner

Our 2nd annual Activistas/urbanMamas community garage sale fundraiser (what a mouthful) is right around the corner, so mark your calendars for Friday August 13th and Saturday August 14th from 9 to 4 PM.  What makes this work so beautifully is YOUR cast-offs.  Because that's what we sell!

We're accepting donations of anything and everything (not just kid stuff) as long as it's not in grim condition.  You can drop it off at one of our homes before the sale, or bring it the day of and "drop and shop."  Whatever works for you.

Last year we raised $1,500 and donated it ALL to Family Forward Oregon.  Our goal this year?  Double that.  So whether you drop or shop (or bake!), we hope you'll be a part of a wonderful community event to support a non-profit that's working hard to support Oregon families.

Details here.

Email us to coordinate a donation or sign up to work a shift (it's fun!).

Is it possible to get a receipt from Family Forward for any items donated? This isn't a deal-breaker for me, but I thought I would check. Thanks!

Karen, I'm sorry to say, no. The way this is working is that we receive your donations, sell them, take 100% of the proceeds and donate them to Family Forward (which is 501c3). We're not getting a receipt, either :-) We might consider doing it differently going forward. Thanks for considering a donation! Lisa
