Garage sale items sought

North Okanagan residents are urged to clean out their cupboards and closets for a good cause.

The Allan Brooks Nature Centre will hold its fall garage sale Sept. 9 and 10.

“Volunteers have already begun taking donations of items and are looking for more,” said Vicki Proulx, communications and events co-ordinator.

Among the items being sought are seasonal decorations, games, pictures, Christmas decorations, CDs, records, automotive items, furniture, books, housewares, linen, sports equipment, toys and tools.

“Please no clothing, magazines, dated electronics, computer monitors, printers, large appliances or Christmas trees,” said Proulx.

Items can be dropped off at the centre Tuesday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or they can be picked up by donation to the Nature Centre.

The spring garage sale raised more than $18,000 and all proceeds go towards educational programs.

For more information, contact or 250-260-4227.
