Annual garage sale helps Langley seniors

Donations to support the annual fundraising garage sale at the Langley Seniors Resource Centre are needed.  

Organizers were amazed at the huge amount of support they received. They’re hoping it continues for this year’s sale which is Saturday.

This year the donations are down and we are asking the community to bring any donations down to the centre, said Shannon Woykin, the centre’s development and marketing coordinator.  

Running now for its fourth consecutive year, the Langley Senior Centre garage sale has something for everyone.

Supporting Langley’s seniors, the sale takes place 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18 at the Langley Senior Centre at 20605 51B Ave.

“Excellent deals will be featured on thousands of items, ranging from art and crafts to Christmas decorations and furniture and everything in between,” she sid.

The garage sale is arranged by theme or item, including a large selection of Christmas wares, housewares, prints and art, knick knacks, books and records, and more.

Before the sale, organizers will be kept busy sorting through donations and will be accepting donations at the centre between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday, until Friday, Oct. 17.

There are some restrictions on items they cannot receive, Woykin explained. Call the centre at 604-530-3020 to find out more about which items cannot be accepted.

Besides the garage sale, the centre will be selling food. A pancake breakfast starts at 7:30 a.m. proceeds going to the United Way. Then there will be hot dogs and popcorn during the sale. Gift baskets will be raffled off in the lobby of the centre. People can buy tickets for only the baskets they want.

The money raised will help the Langley Senior Resources Society provide resources and programs for seniors living in the community through its recreation centre, outreach services and adult day program.
