CHARITY IS AS CHARITY DOES: ATTEND THE 37TH ANNUAL SETTLEMENT HOME FOR CHILDREN CHARITY GARAGE SALE

By LANCE AVERY MORGAN

There are very few organizations that are as special or that operate with such heart all year ‘round as the Settlement Home in Austin. And as luck would have it, the Settlement Home’s annual Charity Garage Sale is near. It features a whopping 21 departments, from furniture to books, clothes to art, and everything in between. Patrons can shop for unique finds and bargain priced items in our huge inventory. There’s something for everyone. Literally. Plus, we love the folks who run it with such skill.

Here’s how you can give back and find some treasures, too:

Sponsorships are still available for the Garage Sale and the community outreach program, Giving for Living. The Annual Garage Sale provides an opportunity for The Settlement Home for Children to not only help the children they serve, but also the Central Texas non-profit community. Through their Giving for Living program on Sunday, The Settlement Home provides vouchers to more than 50 Central Texas non-profits. These non-profits distribute the $25 vouchers to their clients who are in need of essential items, such as clothing, baby clothes and toys, kitchen items and more. The clients use these vouchers to pay for items at the Garage Sale. Now that’s making a difference in the world.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at https://www.settlementhome.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=3
