CHARITY: Churches’ garage sale to raise money for children in Uganda

Nicole Villalpando
Love for Loro volunteers sort through garage sale treasures.

Spring cleaning? Have items that need to go? Front Porch, youth ministry The Window and All Saints’ Episcopal Church are joining together to raise money for school children in Loro Village in Northern Uganda. You can drop off items at two locations: East Space, 2009 Airport Blvd., 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily except holidays and All Saints,’ 209 W. 27th St., 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays starting next week. All big items and furniture needs to be dropped off at the East Space location.

The sale is 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 5 and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 6 at East Space. Love for Loro is hoping to raise $35,000 to help supply things like shoes for students, who often cannot make the 5 mile hike to school because of foot infections.
