Close up on hands browsing record store

We are thrilled to be partnering with The Settlement Home for Children for the fifth year in a row to serve children and families in our community through supporting the 41st Annual Charity Garage and Estate Sale.  The sale benefits the Settlement Home for Children whose mission is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources.  The Settlement Home meets children wherever they are and serves individuals with histories of neglect, abuse and severe emotional trauma.  Services and programs that the Settlement Home provides and supports include fostering, adoption, residential living programs and transitional living housing.

Throughout the year, the Settlement Home for Children accepts and collects donations and then puts on a huge event, the Charity Garage and Estate Sale.  This sale is a huge community effort and we are so glad that we can sponsor this event and volunteer to help put on this event.  At the end of October we dedicate manpower and moving trucks to help transport, haul and unpack thousands of goods before the sale.  You can participate in the Garage and Estate Sale too!

The Settlement Home for Children is no longer accepting donations for 2016, but will begin accepting donations for 2017 in mid-January.  If you are interested in volunteering, you can contact allisoncook43@gmail.com for more information.  And of course, you are welcome to come and shop at the Garage and Estate Sale!  The sale takes place from Thursday, November 3rd through Sunday, November 6th.  The event is held at the Palmer Events Center, located at 900 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704.  For more details, peruse the Settlement Home for Children website.

Since 2012 we have been using our knowledge and resources to volunteer with the Settlement Home for Children Charity Garage and Estate Sale to help the valuable and vulnerable populations they serve.  Join us in assisting this wonderful organization by shopping this year’s sale!
