Are your donation items for the Garage Sale all ready to go?

Now’s your chance to declutter! Our pickup vans and trucks will be making the rounds from 8 to 10 am on Saturday, 9 May. We are looking for books, treasures and small household items.

If you don’t wish to wait until Saturday, you can drop off donations at the Overbrook Community Centre during the week. The Centre staff have kindly offered to store items until Saturday.
