Donations and Volunteers Needed for Lyon Park Yard Sale October 12

Time to clean out the attic and sort through your closets, we need your donations for the the Homeward Trails booth at the Lyon Park Community Yard Sale on Saturday, October 12 from 8 am to 1 PM!

Don’t miss this opportunity to turn your unwanted items into much needed funds for the animals of Homeward Trails.  Last year the sale raised over $1,200 to help our animals!  The sale will take place on at the Lyon Park Community Center (414 N. Fillmore St., Arlington, VA).

It is very much recommended that if you can bring your sale items directly to the Homeward Trails tables on the morning of the sale that you do so.  If you can’t do that, we will begin accepting donations at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center from October 5-11.  We can use clothes, shoes, household items, small appliances, dishes, kitchenware, collectibles, children’s clothes, toys, games, small furniture, rugs, towels, tableware, holiday decorations… you-name-it, we will take it!

In addition, we will need volunteers to help unload and set up (6:30 am – 8 am), help sell items (8 am – 1 pm), and help pack up what is left after the sale (1 pm – 2:30 pm).  Many shoppers come very early so we can use lots of help in those first few hours!!  If you can help anytime from 6:30 AM – 2:30 PM, please let us know when you can be there!  We will also need a few volunteers the week prior to the event to help organize the donations dropped at the Adoption Center and load the transport van.
