Lafayette Juniors Rummage Sale
By Cathy Tyson

Those looking to de-clutter, get a tax deductible donation and support a worthy cause should hold on to their gently used items for the Lafayette Juniors Rummage Sale. On Saturday November 15, the Lafayette Community Center will be open to collect clothing, household goods, furniture, kitchen items, and more from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The big sale starts at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, doors will close at 3:00 - come early for the best selection.
"The children's department does really well," notes Monica Byers. Many of the Juniors have young families and as every parent knows, kids just seem to grow out of their Big Wheels, high chairs, and toddler size clothing so fast.
This annual fall fund raiser is expected to garner between $5,000 and $8,000 to be split among a number of local charities including: Futures Explored, the Lamorinda Spirit Van, and the Xenophon Therapeutic Riding Center in Orinda. With very little outlay of funds to host the sale, the over fifty member strong Juniors are proud that they get a lot of charity bang for the buck.
The few things they don't accept are children's car seats, computer monitors and non-working electronics. Only cash and checks will be accepted in payment.
