Group raising money for trip to New Orleans
GREENCASTLE -- Local resident Indy New is heading to New Orleans in a little over a week to help with the rebuilding of New Orleans. This is the third year New, along with several friends, has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in the city that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
To raise funds to help with their expenses, the group is holding a large garage sale on Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2521 Kinser Pike in Bloomington.
"We have tons of furniture -- new, used and antique -- a washing machine, housewares, sporting goods, books, NASCAR/Pepsi collectibles, Dell computers, clothing and loads of other treasures," said New.
"The work down there is hard. It is really hot and humid and you sweat all the time, but we are all so passionate about helping," she added. "Please stop by and help support this great cause."
Anyone who wants to make a monetary contribution or donate items for the sale can contact New at Chief's Restaurant where she works. The number is 301-4135. They will come and pick up items.
