Ellen needs your stuff for shelter

By on August 3, 2009

GENEVA—Planning is underway for the 6th Annual Ellen’s Excellent Sale at 1110 Union Street in Geneva, to benefit Lazarus House.

Join 15-year old Ellen Wildman by turning extra stuff into cash for Lazarus House. Last year, this Geneva garage sale benefit raised $8,000 in just 2 days.

Ellen and family are seeking donations of furniture, household goods, sporting equipment, home decor, toys, books and tools. Clothes or computer equipment cannot be accepted. All donations are tax deductible.
The sale will be held from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7 and 8 a.m.- 1 p.m. Saturday Aug. 8.

Donations will be accepted starting August 3rd. Call Ellen at (630) 418-7816 or Amy at (630) 414-7816 for more information or donation drop off times.

All proceeds will provide operating funds to Lazarus House, a year round shelter serving men, women and children who are homeless and connected to the Tri Cities and western rural Kane County. Lazarus House also provides grant-funded financial assistance to households at risk of homelessness.
