On May 11th, Royal LePage offices in more than 120 communities across Canada took part in the National Garage Sale for Shelter, a one-day charitable Garage Sale benefitting the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Every dollar raised by the Garage Sale supports local women’s shelters, as well as violence prevention programs.
Our local offices held the sale once again at the parking lot of Salmon’s Transfer, a major contributor to the cause by providing pick up of donations and storage on-site. A huge debt of gratitude goes to all who donated their time, and enthusiasm to such a great cause.
I am excited to announce that the money raised through the Garage Sale surpassed the amount from last year! Thanks to all who came out and shopped, who donated, and who volunteered to sort, price and sell!
