Annual Wal-Mart yard sale scheduled

Friday, August 11, 2006

On Saturday, Sept. 9 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Wal-Mart Transpor-tation will conduct its 10th annual community yard sale for Riley Children's Hospital.

The community yard sale will be at the Wal-Mart Distribution Center parking lot in Greencastle. Anything from antiques to novelty items, to food and clothing will be available for purchase. Everyone attending will have a fun time searching tables for bargains of all kinds.

For nine years, Wal-Mart Transportation has supported Riley Children's Hospital by hosting a community yard sale. Through table rentals, items sold from donations, and the generous help of DePauw University, Baker's Septic Service, and Wal-Mart Distribution Center the yard sale has been a great benefit. Wal-Mart Transportation has been able to donate more than $11,000 to Riley Children's Hospital from the previous years' yard sales.

"It's easy to lose focus on community needs with all the current events within the country and throughout the world. However, the community should come together to support such a worthy cause," Wal-Mart Transportation representative Lauri Garl said. "Last year, more than 75 tables were rented. On Sept. 9, Wal-Mart would like to exceed last year's record.

"This is a good opportunity to make extra income and help children at the same time," Garl said.

Anyone wishing to reserve a table or tables for $15 each may call Wal-Mart Transportation at (765) 658-2094, 658-2081, or 658-2099.
