Annual garage sale June 4-6 to help Habitat for Humanity

PLATTSBURGH - The Champlain Valley Habitat for Humanity's annual garage sale is expected to not only have something for everyone, but also help families receive a home of their own.

CVHFH will hold the event from Friday, June 4, to Sunday, June 6, at the old Lake City Skate building, 102 Sharon Ave.

"It's a huge location," said CVHFH secretary Christina McDonald. "So, it gives us a lot of room to bring in a lot of items."

CVHFH is currently accepting items from the community to be sold in the sale, with the majority of proceeds being utilized to build homes in the area.

Although they cannot accept clothing, shoes, computers, televisions, tires, air conditioners, or mattresses, McDonald said there are many other things they do collect.

"We pretty much accept everything under the sun," she said. "We collect everything."

For those wishing to donate items for the sale, collection times are Wednesdays from 6-8 p.m.; Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m.; and Sundays from 1-5 p.m., at the garage sale location.

"They're donating to a worthy cause," said McDonald of those who bring in items. "They're helping this organization to raise the funds to build a home for someone who needs it. Affordable housing."

For those who attend the sale - which will be held June 4 and Saturday, June 5, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and June 6, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. - there won't just be used items available.

McDonald explained many local businesses bring in items to be sold, including Champlain Valley Electric Supply Co., who has donated 15 pallets of lights.

However, CVHFH is still looking for more items to sell.

"We're a little behind than what we normally do," said McDonald.

CVHFH is also looking for volunteers to help out the day of the sale. For more information, call 569-8113.
