Garage sale to benefit Aldergrove Starfish Pack Program

Aldergrove Rotary Club hopes to raise enough money to provide backpacks full of weekend food to 50 Aldergrove elementary students in need

Proceeds from a garage sale on Saturday, July 4 will be donated to the Aldergrove Starfish Pack Program to help the Aldergrove Rotary Club raise enough money to provide backpacks full of weekend food to 50 Aldergrove elementary students in need.

Garage sale aficionados, looky-loos and keen collectors of someone else’s treasures are invited to stop by, check out the stuff and buy something. It’s for a wonderful cause.

The Starfish Garage Sale will be on Saturday July 4, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 28505 Ranch Avenue (south of Fraser Highway off Bradner) – watch for the balloons.

The Starfish Pack Program augments the elementary school breakfast and lunch programs that feed hungry kids during the week. These same kids need nutritious meals on weekends too. Every Friday afternoon children from Shortreed and Parkside elementary schools are given a backpack full of enough food to last the weekend.

Aldergrove Rotary Club’s plan is to raise enough money to increase the number of children helped from these two schools and to add students from Betty Gilbert Middle School. The cost to provide one needy student with a weekend backpack every Friday of the school year from September to June, not including school holidays, is $525.
