Donations wanted for charity sale set for May

DeKALB – Organizers are seeking donations for a garage sale to build a library and resource center in Tanzania.

The Tanzania Development Support, a local nonprofit organization, is sponsoring a garage sale from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 3 and 4 at 201 Thornbrook Road in DeKalb, according to a news release.

The sale will feature home furnishing, clothing, toys, golf clubs, sporting goods, books, small appliances, electronics and vintage items.

Items can be dropped off before the sale dates by calling 815-901-0393 to schedule a time. Arrangements also can be made for donations to be picked up.

Proceeds from the sale will go toward the library and resource center, which will serve more than 2,000 children and their families in Nyegina, Tanzania. It will be built in three phases, with each phase costing about $150,000.

Checks made to Tanzania Development Support can be mailed to 201 Thornbrook Road, DeKalb, IL 60115, and donations can be made online at tdsnfp.org.
