Giving Back

Huge Good Shepherd Yard Sale is August 31

Donations Welcome Starting Aug 10

ALEXANDRIA,VA- Have you been promising yourself to get on board with the “decluttering” movement? Are you looking for a way to recycle items that are just too good to throw away? Do you love a good bargain? Do you want to help volunteer organizations that are making a difference in our community?

The answer to all those questions can be found at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church Yard Sale. This popular one-day annual event will be held in the church’s air-conditioned hall from 8 am to 2 pm on Saturday, August 31 as the kick-off to the parish’s International Festival Weekend. Early birds can gain priority access from 8 to 9 am for a $10 fee but admission is free after that.

If you are looking to “declutter”, goods can be dropped off at the church at 8710 Mount Vernon Highway, Alexandria, VA 22309 7 days a week beginning Saturday, August 10. We welcome donations of usable items in good condition. There are some items we just cannot accept. Please check our Web site for details:

Proceeds from the sale are donated back to the community through grants to local charitable organizations. So put all your good intentions to work—clean-out, donate and shop
