It's time to get ready for the Quadra Philippine Connection's 18th fund-raising Giant Garage Sale to be held at Quadra Community Centre on Sunday, September 23rd. All proceeds go towards Quadra's current sponsorship of the Dilag Basao and Lubo Hilltop preschool/daycares in the northern Philippines.
Once again, all CLEAN, SALEABLE donations in GOOD WORKING ORDER will be gratefully accepted for this rewarding event. In otherwords, if it's dirty or doesn't work, don't send it! We regret that we will NOT accept skiis, golf clubs, encyclopedias, computers, microwave ovens or old television sets. Please note, however, that computeres, tvs and small appliances as well as many alkaline batteries can be recyled at the Campbell River Bottle Depotat 1580F Willow Street. Separating and labelling your donations of women's, men's, teen's and children's clothing would be most helpful!
