CSU Habitat for Humanity holds yard sale

April 19, 2010

CSU Habitat for Humanity hopes to raise enough money to build a home for a Fort Collins family.

CSU chapter helps tidy up

CSU Habitat for Humanity chapter launches their first annual Spring Cleaning Yard Sale Saturday, April 24 in hopes of making a local family’s dream come true.

“We are hoping to raise enough money to co-sponsor a build here in Fort Collins. Our current goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of the year,” said Ashley Johnson, secretary of CSU’s Habitat for Humanity chapter.

“The great thing about this event is that even if we don't sell as many items as expected, we will still be able to make a large contribution to Habitat Humanity by donating the left over items to the Home Supply Store,” said Johnson.

The Spring Cleaning Yard Sale will take place in the Summitview Community Church parking lot located at 1601 W. Drake. The yard sale will begin at 9 a.m. and start to wind down by 2 p.m.

The Spring Cleaning Yard Sale will be full of treasures including furniture, toys, clothing and more. If you just want to stop by and help support a great cause, CSU Habitat for Humanity will also be accepting monetary donations during the yard sale.
