|JCPRD Afterschool Programs to Conduct Two Charity Garage Sales on April 28 and May 5|
All 24 of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Childrens Services Department's Afterschool Programs are contributing to two charity garage sales planned for late April and early May.
One sale will take place on Saturday, April 28 at Shawanoe Elementary School, 11230 West 75th Street, Shawnee, while the other will take place on Saturday, May 5 at the Gardner Elementary School, 218 E. Shawnee Street, Gardner. Both sales will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature items donated by staff, participants, and their families. The Gardner sale will feature items contributed by the program's four Gardner sites, while the Shawanoe site will feature items provided by the other 20 Afterschool sites. Proceeds will be given to charities which will be selected by children in Afterschool programs.
In 2006, a similar sale conducted by the Sunflower Afterschool program was considered very successful and raised $1,034 for Sunflower House, a local child abuse prevention center, and the Greater Kansas City Humane Society. In addition, leftover items from the sale were donated to Goodwill, several local churches, and City Union Mission.
