John Howard Society garage sale to benefit KidStart

Sporting and household items, camping stuff, clothing, books, toys, and much more

The John Howard Society of North Island is holding a huge fundraising garage sale on Saturday, May 30 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at 140A 10th Avenue.

Sporting and household items, camping stuff, clothing, books, toys, and much more will be for sale. All items will be sold by donation to support John Howard KidStart.

KidStart is a volunteer-based mentoring program that connects positive role models with children ages 6-18 who could benefit from having stable, committed, and caring adults in their lives. KidStart is funded solely by community donations, fundraising, and gaming funds.

We are indoors – the garage sale will take place rain or shine. Come out and support this amazing program and make a difference for children in your community.

John Howard KidStart is in need of volunteer mentors as well as donations. There are currently 90 kids on the waitlist in Campbell River.

For more information, contact Tara Jordan at 250-286-0611 or tara@jhsni.bc.ca
