Fall sale a big deal for Langley seniors’ facility

Big crowds are expected for the annual senior centre sale.

The fifth annual Langley Seniors Resource Centre garage sale is expected to attract more than 1,000 people.

The sale Oct. 17 runs 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 20605 51B Ave.

“Furniture, electronics, clothing, artwork, books, toys – we even have an entire room dedicated to Christmas,” said manager of fundraising Brett O’Reilly. “This is the perfect event for bargain hunters. Everything must go, everything.”

With donated items completely filling a giant steel storage container and flooding into offices, space is at a premium until the big day.

This has become a key fundraiser for the centre which has more than 900 recreation members and helps more than 400 people through its outreach programs. The Adult Day Program serves more than 150 adults with physical and mental limitations.

The non-profit society that runs the seniors centre has been accepting donations of clean, functioning, sellable items and will right up to Oct. 16.

Stop by Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those unable to drop off items can call the centre about pickup service at 604-530-3020.

The centre has asked people not to bring the following items because of safety issues or the inability to resell such items:

• Bike helmets

• Blankets and pillows

• Car seats

• Encyclopaedias

• Old exercise equipment

• Hockey pads

• Mattresses

• Old microwaves

• Printers

• Stuffed voys

• Text books

• Old toaster ovens

• Opened/used toiletries and cosmetics

• Upholstered furniture

• VHS tapes

• Audio cassette tapes

• Old, non-functioning electronics
