19th annual Giant Garage Sale set for Sept. 22

A concession selling home-baked goodies, pizza and fresh roasted Aroma coffee will be available to sustain you while you shop

The Quadra Philippines Connection presents its 19th annual Giant Garage Sale to be held on Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Quadra Community Centre from 10  a.m. until 2 pm.

All items are by donation and it is advised to come early to take advantage of a multitude of recycled treasures filling the expanse of the community centre including furniture, appliances, household goods, toys, tools, books, clothing and more!

A concession selling home-baked goodies, pizza and fresh roasted Aroma coffee will be available to sustain you while you shop.

Proceeds from the giant garage sale go to Quadra’s sponsorship of the Basao-Dilag and Lubo-Hilltop preschool/daycare programs in  remote areas of Luzon in the northern Philippines.

The $5,500 raised annually  provides supplies, teacher stipends and bonuses for the two daycares as well as financing special projects  such as community backyard gardening and typhoon relief.

The Quadra Philippines Connection began in 1994 through IAT (the InternationalAssociation for Transformation), a small non-profit organization operating out of lower Vancouver Island. IAT has been involved in child sponsorship in the Philippines for over 30 years with a focus on education, leadership skills and youth empowerment.
