It's that time of year again! ...And I don't mean tax time or even BBQ season! It's time to donate gently loved goods and shop for some new treasures at the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation Garage Sale!
Saturday May 11, 2013 (8am - 2pm)
will mark our fifth national garage sale for the Shelter Foundation.
It takes place again in our parking lot next to the office:
Royal LePage 1391 Bayview Avenue
Proceeds from the event will be donated to our local women’s shelter and to provincial grassroots violence prevention programs for youth and children. The recipient of our efforts is a wonderful shelter in Toronto called Interval House:
The National Garage Sale for Shelter is a fun community charity event that relies on YOUR donations!
This is the time of year for spring cleaning or perhaps you need to de-clutter before selling! We can help you with BOTH! Not only are we accepting drop offs of small items at our office, we can also arrange pick up of larger items. We will be selling: furniture, plants, household items, toys, books, clothing and much more!
Royal LePage strongly believes in the importance of giving back to our communities! I am very proud of the fact that Royal LePage is the ONLY Canadian real estate company to have our own charitable Foundation. All of the administrative costs of the Foundation are generously underwritten by Royal LePage so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to helping the local women’s shelter.
Last year, our offices across Canada raised over $450,000.With your help we can shatter that record in 2013.
I plan to donate anything not sold in my Craigslist Moving Challenge and I will see if I can find any treasures for our new home. Last year, I purchased the Le Creuset French Oven (main article picture) and we probably use it once a week!
