Carol Foort
This year celebrates 20 years of Quadra's support to a variety of daycare/preschool in the northern Philippines through our annual Philippines Connection's Giant Garage Sale. Our current support continues to go to the Lubo Hilltop and Basao Dilag programs in a remote part of the northern province of Luzon. This is a wonderful opportunity to clear out and recycle treasures and goods that you are ready to pass on for this worthy cause.
This year's sale will be held at Quadra Community Centre on Sunday, September 28th from 10 am until 2 pm. so mark this date on your calendar now!
The following locations will be available for dropping off your items from September 1st until September 26th. All donations should be clean and in good working order. We regret that NO skiis, golf clubs, encyclopedias, computers, microwaves or non flat-top tvs can be accepted. Any mattresses and couches should be clean and in saleable condition.
