Boys & Girls Club to hold yard sale

SAN BENITO — The San Benito Boys & Girls Club will hold a community yard sale in an effort to raise funds, kick off the summer and add to program registration.

The club is taking donations now until May 27.

They will then turn around and sell these items for proceeds.

Items accepted for re-sale include gently worn clothing, books, toys, games, tools, home décor, artwork, electronics, DVDs, CDs and collectibles.

They will also accept monetary donations. Bedding and broken items will not be accepted.

The proceeds will go toward funding club operations.

Event coordinator Carlos Gomez said they get money to fund their programs but not much money for operations.

“Funding is kind of slim,” he said.

Gomez said it would be ideal to receive $100,000.

“Whatever we can get, we can get,” he said.
