Starting Over Support – June Garage Sale Fundraiser

To all our Volunteers, Supporters of and Donors to Starting Over Support,

We are holding our June Garage Sale from our new premises in the larger front warehouse in John St. Due to the many referrals that are being sent to SOS we have had to increase our floor space! Please come and show how much you appreciate the services we provide to the needy families in Perth. We need to increase our FUNraising efforts to accommodate our increase in rent, and we would love you to help us stay viable.

As usual we are asking you to support SOS by circulating the attached flyer to your circle of acquaintances, posting on noticeboards and lunchrooms, as well as telling family, friends and neighbours and encouraging people to attend. The greater the exposure to the community the more benefit to SOS and the work we do; giving furniture and household goods to the needy families in Perth.

By visiting our facebook page the post can be shared;  thereby reaching a larger community.

GARAGE SALE

Saturday 24th June  1pm  – 4:30 pm
Sunday    25th June  8am  – 1pm

5 John St, Bayswater

If you would like to assist/volunteer in setting up, selling or packing away on either day please contact caterina.rechichi@hotmail.comGarage Sale June
