Yard sales this Saturday to support children, cats

July 22nd, 2014 · No Comments

Saturday brings two yard sales – one here and one nearby – to benefit good causes.

The Friends of Campus Cats Jumble Sale is being held here in Maple Leaf at 10 a.m. on July 26th.

An hour earlier, at 9 a.m., the Seattle Ronald McDonald House will host its second annual Sidewalk Sale in Wedgwood.

The local sale, benefiting cat rescue on the University of Washington campus and several neighborhoods, including Maple Leaf, is at 536 N.E. 100th St. Watch for the signs on Roosevelt Way Northeast.

The organizers are also still looking for donations:

This year’s fabulous Campus Cats Jumble Sale is set for July 26 (final Saturday of the month), right in the heart of lovely Maple Leaf. Come one, come all—even dog lovers are welcome!  We open at 10 a.m., and have a strict no-early-bird, no-whining policy.

All our items are donated goods, and 100% of the proceeds go to Friends of Campus Cats, a charity that manages and rescues (where possible) feral cats on the University of Washington campus and various neighborhoods around the city.

We are still gratefully accepting donations (which are tax-deductible, by the way, as we are a 501(c)(3) organization). We accept books, CDs, DVDs, knick-knacks, collectibles, kitchenware, crafts and hobby supplies, small appliances, jewelry and the like. The more, the better, for both your tax return and for our fuzzy charges. We will gladly pick up if you are unable to deliver, so please call or email to make arrangements.

Also needed are volunteers to help on the day of the sale. Again, please email or call for details.

The other sale, “featuring 10,00s of items donated by local businesses including Chef’n, Compendium, Kid’s Club, Super Jock ‘N Jill and more,” takes place in front of the Ronald McDonald House, 5130 40th Ave. N.E.

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Western Washington & Alaska supports seriously ill children and their families. At the Seattle Ronald McDonald House, we provide a “home-away-from-home” to help families through a difficult time. We also provide a van service for families staying in Anchorage while their children receive medical care.
