Rummage Sale on November 5th to Benefit Alternative Family Services, Contra Costa Interfaith Housing, The Taylor Family Foundation, and Trinity Center of Walnut Creek

 LAFAYETTE, CA— The Lafayette Juniors are continuing their long tradition of service to others in need and in this spirit recently selected Alternative Family Services, Contra Costa Interfaith Housing, The Taylor Family Foundation, and Trinity Center of Walnut Creek as their 2016–2017 beneficiaries. The Juniors' first fundraising event for these four local non-profits will be their 23rd Annual Rummage Sale on Saturday, November 5th.

"We are thrilled to be able to help children, as well as homeless and at-risk families and individuals in Contra Costa and nearby counties through our 2016–2017 non-profit beneficiaries,” said Christine Kelly, Co-President of the Lafayette Juniors. "These non-profit organizations will use the proceeds from our fundraising events, beginning with our Fall Rummage Sale, to provide critical services to foster youth and families, affordable housing and supportive services to homeless families and individuals, and therapeutic experiences and support to children with life-threatening and chronic illnesses. We are continually grateful to everyone who comes together to support us so that we can continue to serve those who need it the most.”

The Rummage Sale will be held on November 5th at the Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church in Lafayette from 8 am–2 pm with a special Early Bird Entrance fee of $5 per adult from 7 am–8 am. The Juniors invite you to shop for pre-loved designer clothes, baby and kid clothes, toys, children's gear, furniture, household goods, and much more.
