Special to the Leader
Windy days did not deter bargain shoppers at the first His Closet Yard Sale. A small army of volunteers turned out for days prior to the event to sort and ready donated items for sale.
“We are so honored by the support of the community” said founder Donna Guisa, “and we are thrilled that we were able to raise enough money to support our upcoming projects.”
The recent week’s yard sale was a truly successful event, although normally all items are given away freely.
