Paul and Vicki Lyons, Owners
of Home Helpers in New Lenox, are once again coordinating a garage sale to
benefit the Religious of Jesus and Mary order’s work in Haiti. This year’s event is a four-day, two-location
The first weekend, September 14-15 takes place at Good Shepherd Manor, 4129 N. State Route 1 in Momence from 10 am - 5 pm on Saturday the 14th and 9:30 am - 3 pm on the Sunday the 15th.
The second weekend, September 20–21 will be held at Life Storage of Mokena at 8531 W. 191st Street from 9 am - 3 pm both Friday and Saturday.
Since 1997, the Religious of Jesus and Mary have lived in solidarity with the Haitian people in the countryside, and have provided food, medicine and education to countless children and families. For the past seven years, the garage sale proceeds have helped the impoverished country after years of earthquake and hurricane damage.
Clothing, furniture and other items have been collected over the past several months and additional items may be donated up to three days prior to the sale.
For more information about the garage sale or to donate items for the event, please contact Vicki Lyons at 708-567-7690.
