Wendell Foster Hosting Spring Yard Sale- DONATIONS NEEDED!

OWENSBORO, KENTUCKY – Wendell Foster, a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving people with disabilities, is hosting its Spring Yard Sale on Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4 from 7:00 am until 12:00 pm and is asking for donated yard sale items from the community. The yard sale, a bi-yearly event at the campus, raises proceeds for the Wendell Foster Christmas Fund. The Christmas Fund ensures that every resident at Wendell Foster receives a few gifts during Christmas.

“Our yard sales are so popular that we expanded to two days for our spring sale,” explained Jennifer Owsley-Midkiff, Director of Recreation at Wendell Foster. “We will also be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers to sell, which will contribute to the Christmas Fund. We invite the community to shop, grab a bite to eat, and support our residents!”

All donations, except clothes and shoes, will be accepted. Large items such as decor and furniture are welcome. Donations can be dropped off at the Young Building, located at Wendell Foster’s campus at 815 Triplett Street in Owensboro. Items will be accepted April 30 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm, and on May 1 and May 2 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

“We appreciate both the donations of items to sell and those who come to the yard sale to purchase items,” said Owsley-Midkiff. “The Christmas season truly wouldn’t be the same for our residents without the yard sale and the community support.”
