Food Bank garage sale this Saturday

9 to 2:30 at the curling rink this Saturday at the curling rink

It’s the biggest weekend of the year for Kimberley garage-salers. We’re speaking of the annual Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank Garage Sale, which goes this Saturday, August 23 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All sorts of bargains and treasures are to be found at the sale.

The annual sale is a big summer fundraiser for the Food Bank, last year netting about $10,000.

This year’s rendition appears like it will have a lot of offer. Both Mayor Ron McRae and Coun. Albert Hoglund said they had been down to the curling rink to drop off items for sale this week and found the entire floor of the curling rink covered with sale items.

“Kudos to the volunteers and organizers,” McRae said. “It’s a massive task sorting all that stuff out.”

Food bank volunteers have been at the curling rink daily for the month of August, accepting items donated for the sale.
